Skateistan, a documentary film by Orlando Einsiedel on a skatepark project for the kids of Kabul, Afghanistan.
I was thrilled to learn that Skatistan was created in Kabul. It is a unique outlet for the youth to boost confidence and learn something completely new in a fun and safe way.
I live in Kabul and work for an international development consulting firm and believe that many types of development projects can be successful and have impact on the people in Afghanistan, such as the Skatistan project.
I commend the organization for helping young girls and boys lead happy and healthy lives in a very challenging setting.

Current project: DIY Skatepark for Kabul.
