Skateistan Launches in South Africa

Skateistan has made its way to Johannesburg, South Africa and is beginning to implement their fourth program since its conception. An expansion of ongoing projects in Afghanistan and Cambodia, the 4th international project site will continue their mission of using skateboarding as a tool for empowering youth, to create new opportunities and the potential for change.

 Skateistan is hosting a media launch to officially announce its arrival in South Africa on 6th June from 16:00-18:00 in Johannesburg’s Maboneng district. There will be a Q&A with staff, a meet & greet with their newest volunteers, and an overview of current & future programming. Don’t miss it if you’re in the area! Check out the flyer for the event below. There is also a short video clip from a Johannesburg skatepark explaining the mission.
