Skateistan is an award­-winning international non-­profit organization that uses skateboarding and education for youth empowerment. Over 1600 youth, aged 5­-17, attend their Skate Schools in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. Through their innovative programs, Skate and Create, Back­-To-­School and Youth Leadership, they aim to give youth the opportunity to become leaders for a better world.

Enter the ‘Give Her Five’ fundraising campaign:

Skateistan believes that girls have an equal right to be safe, play sport, go to school, have confidence and become leaders. But in order to continue their work and show other girls that they too can achieve this, they need help. Skateistan is asking the public to ‘Give Her Five’ by donating $5 in a bid to raise $100,000 by December 31st.

A single donation will help create new opportunities for girls through skateboarding and education.

Join the cause and empower youth through the act of play.
