This video was made by Skateistan, an NGO with a mission to “use skateboarding as a tool for empowering youth, to create new opportunities and the potential for change.”
Also from Skateistan: “Because once kids latch onto skating, much more is possible: Education, Community, Leadership.”
“Through skateboarding I started dreaming again. Knowing that I can do something well and having teachers that support me helped me to believe in myself.”
– Madina, 14, Skateistan student and peer instructor
