SKATEISTAN, to live and skate Kaboul

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 

Adults have completely destroyed their world and they try to reconstruct themselves by the practise of skate board. Their future is uncertain.

Skateistan, an afghan Non Governmental Organization, has built the skatepark, loans the helmets and the boards and also instructs youth to their future role of citizens but also about art and culture.

Deepest thanks to my cousin for making me to discover this video and who work in the International Committee of the Red Cross and travelled in Kaboul during 2009.
