Through the hook of skateboarding we engage children, especially girls and children from low income backgrounds, and provide them with access to safe spaces and education. Our innovative programs teach children valuable life skills that go beyond the skatepark and the classroom. At Skateistan, our vision is to create leaders that make a better world.
“I CAN'T IMAGINE NOT HAVING ACCESS TO SKATEBOARDING. SKATEISTAN SHARES SKATEBOARDING WITH SO MANY CHILDREN WORLDWIDE, EMPOWERING YOUNG GIRLS IN AFGHANISTAN, CAMBODIA AND SOUTH AFRICA.”
