The Rural Changemakers e.V.

About us

The Rural Changemakers is an award–winning project in the field of rural development. It's using skateboarding as a trigger for change. In less than five years the skatepark has brought tangible change to Janwaar, Madhaya Pradesh, a remote village with 1200 villagers. It follows an innovative approach and is quite unusual in comparison to traditional development aid: it's an approach which doesn't pre-define any kind of program and outcome, it rather develops the program together with the villagers.

The kids are at the centre of all our activities and we try to enable them to take their future in their own hands. The change we see has proven the concept right. Meanwhile the idea has inspired many and we've replicated the model in three other villages in India.
