Skateistan

Every day I seem to read more and more about these guys and what they are up to. So I thought I would add to the noise and write a post about em.

In case you don’t know who or what Skateistan is. Founded in 2008 in the war torn country of Afghanistan, Skateistan was set up as the world’s first co-educational skateboard school. It takes the displaced youth of Kabul and through skateboarding teaches them about cross-cultural relations, education and personal development.

It amazes me that in the midst of all the one of the bloodiest and politically unstable countries. A group people/volunteers have taken it upon themselves to help the next generation of kids in Kabul and hopefully give them brighter futures.

Great stuff here.
