EED provides start-up funding for a group of skateboarders passionate about social change. The project aims at developing a sustainable skateboarding programme, equipping disadvantaged refugee youth with leadership skills.
The overall objective of 7hills is to offer the disadvantaged youth, both local and refugee, an opportunity for self-empowerment and intercultural social networking in an atmosphere of tolerance and equality. 7hills reaches out to refugee camps in Jordan, as well as Iraqi, Sudanese, Somali and Yemeni refugee communities in Amman.
