Why we love Skateistan Cambodia

 

Skateistan is the first international development initiative to combine skateboarding with educational outcomes (why has this not been done before!). Skateistan is non-political, independent and inclusive of all ethnicities, religions and social backgrounds.I have never successfully ridden a skateboard, and to be honest, I am petrified of trying. But Skateistan is bringing amazing opportunities to young people in Afghanistan and Cambodia through skateboarding.

Not only does Skateistan teach kids between 5 and 18 how to skate, promoting fitness and engaging youth, but they also provide education and personal empowerment programs.

If you are a keen skateboarder, or if you are a skateboard scardy cat like me, you can help the great work Skateistan is doing in Cambodia by donating a ramp! www.skateistan.org/programs/skateboarding
