Doing Good: Skateistan

The LA Times has a slideshow of kids skateboarding in Afghanistan, who’ve learned moves from a non-profit organization called Skateistan. From the site: “…we’ve seen that Afghan youth of all ethnicities, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds love to skateboard. Skateistan brings them together, equipping young men and women to lead their communities toward social change and development.” That’s rad.–Stef McDonald
