Kick A$$ Afghan Girls Skateboarding – Skateistan
What first started out as an Afghan NGO has turned into the International phenom called Skatistan.
Skatistan was founded by Oliver Percovich who arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan in 2007, with three skateboards in hand. During his visit he met a group of local boys and girls eager to learn how to skate. The organization took shape over the years into a formalized school and class structure where students aged 5-17 could empower themselves express themselves in a way they couldn’t before.
Skatistan has over 400 students (40% are female) in Afghanistan with projects launching in Pakistan and Cambodia soon.
