So rad to see that a skatepark has been built via Crowd Funding in Ethiopia. And even better to see this pic of a young girl learning to skate for the first time.

Ethiopia Skate was co-founded by American photographer Sean Stromsoe and local skater Abenezer Temesgen. The passion embodied by the group, however, is spreading beyond the city walls. Ethiopian cities Bahir Dar and Awassa also have skate collectives, thanks in part to smooth roads which locals say are perfect for indy grabs.
