Since 2007, Skateistan has opened two skateparks, creating safe spaces for more than 2000 children in Afghanistan and Cambodia to learn and play. Hundreds of youth ages 5-17 come weekly for skateboarding, creative arts workshops, and basic education.
40% of Skateistan’s students are female, and more than 50% are streetworking children.
If you believe that skateboard-based education can create positive change, show your support this holiday season by participating in our “Keep Skateistan Rolling” fundraising drive from Dec. 3rd to 9th.
To give you an idea of how your holiday donations can impact the lives of Skateistan students we are releasing a series of daily video stories throughout the week, focusing especially on the amazing skater girls we work with. These video stories will give you a glimpse into daily life at Skateistan, and demonstrate how your contributions to Skateistan positively influence the lives of young girls and boys in Afghanistan and Cambodia.
Every donation, no matter how small, helps keep Skateistan students rolling towards new opportunities and personal empowerment.
