Skateistan’s “It’s Her Turn” Campaign

Skateistan is an international non-profit empowering youth through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa. Recently, they launched a new campaign called “It’s Her Turn.” The campaign’s goal is to empower and inspire girls to be whatever they dream of being.

Around half of Skateistan students are girls and all Skate Schools have female General Managers, and because of their programs, the highest concentration of female skaters in the world can be found in northern Afghanistan.

“It’s Her Turn” is hoping to raise $75,000 to help benefit Skateistan students and will run until the end of July. You can donate here.

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. The current situation with Covid-19 only highlights these issues. Girls are now taking on more of the household chores, more at risk from violence due to increased tensions and stress at home, and less likely to return to school once restrictions are lifted. Support Skateistan to show girls that they can be whatever they want to be, head to our campaign site to make a donation at the link in bio! #itsherturn #skateistan #goskateboardingday
