Skateistan started in Afghanistan and it started with Outreach. Nine years later and we are still running Outreach sessions to engage with local youth to get them signed up to our programs. This is a recent photo from an Outreach session in Mazar where sisters skated for the first time together on the streets!

Keeping your balance on four wheels can be a challenging task that needs multiple hands to manage! These students are bravely accepting the challenge during an Outreach session in Johannesburg with Skateistan South Africa. Educators arrange 2 Outreach sessions here in Troyeville each week to get the girls and boys in the local area skating. Two years later, the students are regulards now!

At Outreach many youth try skateboarding for the first time and it will be their introduction to Skateistan. In Mazar this year we started to do weekly Outreach sessions at a local boys orphanage to bring skateboarding and fun to them.

Our Skate and Create students in Johannesburg were having a great time at Skateistan South Africa this week in the new learning creative space. The children appreciate the afternoon classes that they attend after school as they are a great chance to play with friends, and enjoy creative learning through arts and skateboarding!
