Inspired by how skateboarding unites people from different backgrounds, all around the world, this month our fundraising campaign will showcase the faces and stories of the supporters, students, skateboarders and staff who are a part of what we do. It’s all about community.
Skateistan is a family, of skateboarders, staff, students and supporters, who share the vision of bringing children together through skateboarding and education. It is a place where children come to skate, learn and feel like they belong. We provide life skills, education opportunities, and a voice for some of the world’s most vulnerable youth in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. Community is about supporting one another and now we ask for your support.
You can help us to reach our $100,000 target by holding a fundraiser, donating or becoming a ‘Citizen of Skateistan’. Read on to find out more...
Check out the inspiring campaign launch video edited by renowned filmmaker Ty Evans, featuring Skateistan’s community of students and staff, alongside legendary skaters Tony Hawk, Jamie Thomas and Mimi Knoop, all telling us what it means to be a Citizen of Skateistan...
Stay tuned this December for more stories of those who skate with us, learn from us and support us.
In 2016 we have two big new projects in South Africa and Cambodia, as well as continuing to grow our reach in Afghanistan. Here are all the ways you can get involved.
This is the best way to donate and help Keep Skateistan Rolling!
By donating monthly, you help make it possible for thousands of children in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa to attend our flagship programs, preparing them to be role models in their community. Your monthly donation will make skateboarding and education, something that we take for granted each day, accessible to at-risk youth around the world!
Your donation goes a long way. Here is the equivalent of what it can provide...
One week of clean drinking water for Skateistan students in Afghanistan.
One month of fuel supply for Street Outreach sessions in South Africa.
Six months of transport costs for the mobile tuk tuk skatepark for Cambodian Street Outreach sessions.
Donate to win! Those who generously donate $50 or more will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win an amazing array of goodies.
What kind of goodies, you ask?
Maybe you already have an idea of how you want to get involved and support?
Here are a few Skateistan fundraisers who took things into their own hands...

The official Keep Skateistan Rolling merchandise is a great way to represent Skateistan and keep our students on boards and in school. 100% of proceeds go to our projects.
Thank you for helping to Keep Skateistan Rolling this December!
