Learning To Skateboard In A Warzone
39m

This film tells the story of young Afghan girls learning to read, write - and skateboard - in Kabul. The film follows a class of girls at Skateistan, a nonprofit that began as a skate school in Kabul in 2007 and grew into a multinational educational initiative. Skateistan focuses on recruiting girls from impoverished neighbourhoods to not only teach them to skateboard, but to help educate them so they can join - or return to - the public-school system.
