Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If You're a Girl)
Skateistan began as a skate school in Kabul, in 2007, and grew into a multinational educational initiative. It focuses on recruiting girls from impoverished neighborhoods to not only teach them to skateboard, but to help them gain courage and life skills that will transcend skateboarding and the classroom, to help them thrive and adapt to the challenges that lie ahead. Over the course of the school year, the girls grow and become empowered through the joy of skateboarding, and the warmth and inspiration of the women who teach them.
