For the first time ever, the girls and boys of Afghanistan now have an outdoor skateboarding plaza to call their own. Thanks to generous support from the German Federal Foreign Office and a number of individual donors – people just like yourselves – Skateistan was recently able to complete the outdoor skate plaza in the courtyard of its Mazar-e-Sharif facility. Officially opened on October 24th, the outdoor space features pathways with skatepark obstacles, an outdoor classroom, trees for shade, grass areas for outdoor sports, gardens and a greenhouse.
This is extremely special in Afghanistan, where opportunities to safely skateboard outside have been rare, especially for Skateistan’s female students.
Be the first to have an inside look at the incredible Skateistan school in Mazar-e-Sharif, built in 2013. This facility is truly unique in Afghanistan, where safe spaces for children are exceptionally rare… And a place – just for kids – with skateparks, classrooms, and a climbing wall? Unthinkable. Until now!
