In brief

Skateistan works with disadvantaged children ages five to 17 in the city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The skateboarding and creative education programmes are available free of charge and open to youth from all backgrounds, including different economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds to encourage respect, empathy and social cohesion.

Children join Skateistan’s programmes through outreach and community engagement activities, including skateboarding activities in identified areas of need, community events, community surveys and needs assessments, and forming strong partnerships with local organisations and schools to work with some of the hardest to reach youth in the city.
