A Monumental Trip For Women's Skateboarding: From Johannesburg to Phnom Penh

In honour of International Women's Day, we asked, Programs Officer, Kelly to tell us more about her trip to Phnom Penh for the first ever cultural exchange between Skateistan Cambodia and Skateistan South Africa. From Johannesburg to Phnom Penh, California to Oslo, Berlin to Kabul, girls and women are part of the same community thanks to skateboarding. 

Four Reasons Why We Celebrate International Women's Day

International Women's Day is an important celebration for Skateistan. Our programs are not gender biased and neither is skateboarding, so half of our students are girls, half of them are boys. Every day we celebrate how skateboarding is a hook for engaging at-risk youth and providing education at our Skate Schools around the world, but once a year, we particularly celebrate the opportunities it has given girls. The opportunity for education, learning through play and to develop life skills for a better future. So, here are 4 reasons, from our Skate Schools around the world, why we are celebrating International Women's Day.
