The Pushing Against Racism Fund was created by the Pushing Against Racism Working Group, as a direct action to promote an anti-racist culture in the skateboarding community worldwide. Goodpush selected 12 initiatives from 12 different countries to receive a total of $15,000 in grants. One of these grantees is Kovalam Skate Club.
The SISP Kovalam Skate Club is located at SISP, Kovalam, India and was founded in 2014 as a part of the bigger NGO SISP. The Kovalam Surf Club always had the principle “no school, no surfing” to encourage children who were not in education. During monsoon they had no way of surfing. Now with free skateboarding lessons they can motivate the school drop-outs also during monsoon to continue their education.
