Free Border Skate was founded by Salam LADC UK as a part of its play and community programs for refugee children in Lebanon. Dedicated to teaching kids confidence and community building through roller skating, the program provides a safe space for youth in areas of extreme poverty and conflict. In 2020, the program expanded to Nicaragua alongside the launch of our Skate, Surf, Yoga Retreat. Our program in Nicaragua follows the same mission, offering local children opportunities to build confidence and community through roller skating.


Every Penny Counts

Salam UK is a grassroots organization run completely by board members and volunteers. Without our dedicated donors, we can not continue our work. By signing up to make a one time or monthly contribution, you are helping us on our road to make our programs 100% sustainable and lead by the communities we impact. *Donations are made through Paypal giving which ensures our work with the community is transparent and our org has legitimate registration.*


No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.

There are many ways for you to contribute to our work. One of those ways is to get involved with some of our important causes. Believe us when we say that everyone can play a part and is needed. Read on to learn more about what we do and how you can lend a hand. 


Do Good Together

Having a network is a powerful thing. How about using it to help those in need. If you'd like to host a rollout, skate-a-thon, bake sale, collect donations, organize a car wash or any other activity you can dream up, we will be happy to provide you with all the branded materials you need for your event. Please get in touch through the link below.

A unique vision, upheld by our community.

The Free Border Skate program operates with a unique funding model globally, with 50% of its support coming from bookings of our retreats and 50% from donations made directly to our governing organization. This ensures that every retreat participant contributes to the sustainability of the programs in both Nicaragua and Lebanon, and those who cannot join are still given the opportunity to make an impact. All contributions are tax-deductible for U.K. residents.
