Activities Take Off at Skateistan Mazar

Many children in Mazar have been able to experience the excitement of skateboarding

Many children in Mazar have been able to experience the excitement of standing on a board for the first time.

It’s been a few months since the first skateboard demo ever in Mazar-e-Sharif, and over time this traditional yet modern urban centre in northern Afghanistan has embraced skateboarding as its latest passtime. More than 100 students are already attending classes each week. Girls come for skating, sports and art on Sundays and Tuesdays, taught by female instructors, and boys are taught by male instructors on Mondays and Wednesdays.
