Guest Post By Oliver Percovich via Skateistan
SKATEISTAN MEANS 'THE LAND OF SKATE'. IT'S OUR LAND.
Skateboarding is a universal language, uniting people all around the world. It is a culture that sees no boundaries, only opportunities; to learn, to progress and to belong. As a family of students, skaters, staff and supporters, we are an international community that shares a dream of bringing children together through skateboarding and education.
We are the Citizens of Skateistan.
When you donate on a monthly basis, you become one too and help make it possible for thousands of children in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa to attend our flagship programs, preparing them to be role models in their community. Skateistan is a safe place where children come to play and learn life skills. Your monthly donation will make skateboarding and education, something that we take for granted each day, accessible to at-risk youth around the world!
The same way skateboarding unites people; we want to bring together an international community of supporters. So become a ‘Citizen of Skateistan’ today!
‘SKATEBOARDING BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER
BECAUSE IT IS THE GREAT EQUALIZER.’
