Afghanistan: Learning to skateboard in a warzone (if you are a girl)

Housed in space that serves as both a schoolhouse and a skatepark, Skateistan is a non-profit organization in Afghanistan that teaches young girls to read, write – and skateboard – in Kabul. The girls are taught to have courage and are given the skills to prepare them for life in Afghanistan and beyond.
