This is your chance to make a huge difference in the life of a child.

What does the future look like in the eyes of children growing up in war torn countries or experiencing poverty, discrimination and extreme hardship? Every child deserves a chance to dream and to reach their full potential. Skateistan has found the winning formula of combining sports and education as a real path to personal growth, professional advancement, and the bright futures all children deserve.

What can you do for the future of Skateistan youth?


Something changes within when children who are experiencing very difficult situations come to Skateistan. Suddenly, life is fun and full of opportunity. The future looks brighter.

Take a sneak peak at our newest video and stay tuned this July as we update you with photo stories and videos to learn what Skateistan youth want for their futures. In the meantime, keep the magic happening by becoming a supporter and donating monthly to help us reach our fundraising goal this July.



As little as $10/month can help a student to keep skating and learning.

Giving a monthly donation is the best way to help us be a consistent part of the lives of children who need support the most. By giving monthly, you can continually provide teachers, skateboarding teachers, back-packs, shoes, textbooks, lunch, footballs, art supplies, first-aid, transport, tools for skatepark repairs and a whole host of other necessities. More importantly, you are investing in the futures of our students in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa - the life skills, confidence, motivation, education and opportunities for leaders of the next generation.

Do something inspiring today.


Just a few examples of how your contribution will impact Skateistan youth.

Students in Cambodia
$10 / MONTH

For one Cambodian student to attend Street Outreach for a semester.

Students in Afghanistan
$40 / MONTH

For one Afghan student to attend Skate and Create for a year.

Students in South Africa
$80 / MONTH
