Skateistan is the first international development organisation to empower youth through education and skateboarding.

Founded in 2008 on the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan, Skateistan actually works in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. Through the hook of skateboarding, their award-winning programmes provide opportunities to children ages five to 17, especially girls, children from low-income backgrounds or children living with disabilities and children from more than 20 nationalities and ethnicities, providing creative arts-based education and valuable life skills that go beyond the skate park and classroom.
