Help Keep Skateistan Rolling this December!

Keep Skateistan Rolling Kabul Safe Spaces

It's that time of year again - "Keep Skateistan Rolling" time! Over the month of December, we aim to raise $60 000 to help keep us rolling into next year. Why? It matters for kids to have safe places to play, especially those living in difficult circumstances or in a conflict situation. In places like Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa, the streets aren't a safe place for children. Children deserve more - they deserve a childhood. That's where Skateistan comes in.
