Back-to-School Takes Off In Mazar

Students gather to register for classes.      

On December 17th 2013, Skateistan in Mazar-e-Sharif began the first semester of its Back-to-School program. Thirteen girls and 30 boys came to Skateistan excited to get back on track with their studies, with a goal to recruit an equal amount of girls in coming weeks. After completion of the program, Skateistan will assist the students to enrol or re-enrol in government schools.
