It’s Her Turn : Skateistan

We are all about supporting girls in outdoor sports like biking, surfing and skating. Check out this great program called Skateistan! They are working on a fundraiser campaign

Around the world and in many aspects of life, girls are second in line. Society teaches girls to lower their expectations, to accept second best. Girls are pushed into a role in life which is predetermined. They are prevented from realizing their full potential.

That’s about to change. Now It’s Her Turn.

From day one at Skateistan, it’s been our priority to include and encourage girls. Through skateboarding and creative education, girls at Skateistan find a way to explore their interests, develop their skills and defy society’s expectations. We encourage girls to grow within our programs, so that as they get older, they can help younger girls to follow in their footsteps. Our female staff and students inspire others and their wider communities. Our aim is to support girls to build a better future in which they can thrive.

It’s her turn to try, her turn to grow. It’s her turn to lead.

If you’d like to support this program’s work to grow, with even more girls getting into skateboarding, you can donate here. Also, if you don’t have anything to give but you like our cause, please tell a friend or two. It all counts!
