keep skateistan rolling in 2014 - madina's story (afghanistan).

things are changing in afghanistan. help skateistan continue to empower afghan youth like madina and keep skateistan rolling! this july we're aiming to raise 20,000usd and we need your help, here!

16-year-old madina is one of afghanistan's most talented skaters. starting out in skateistan's creative arts and skateboarding program, madina began as a student but has quickly become an excellent female role model and an inspiring teacher.

only 13% of afghan women can read and over 70,000 afghan children work in the streets daily to support their families.

since joining skateistan, madina has gone from ordinary afghan girl to a tedx speaker. in 2014 she represented afghanistan at un habitat's world urban forum in 2014 - her first time leaving her country.

help us keep skateistan rolling and continue to offer leadership opportunities to the youth of afghanistan, cambodia and south africa through skateboarding.
