Skateistan – “Afghanistan’s Girl Skaters”

I really love Skateistan.

When I was a teen-ager, and actually also now, I used to hang out with skaters and that culture remained in my blood in a sort of way. And I really care about children and the fact that all around the world children deserve to play and have fun together.

Skateistan brings joy, education and fun to children. It began as a Kabul-based Afghan NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) and is now an International non-profit charity providing skateboarding and educational programming in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Pakistan. Skateistan is non-political, independent, and inclusive of all ethnicities, religions and social backgrounds. You can find how to get involved here.

Have you ever heard about that? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Let’s start a good discussion together!
