There Are Cool Young Girls Skateboarding in Afghanistan

Skateistan, a skateboard park in Kabul, Afghanistan, is giving young girls the chance to be cooler than you'll ever be. Started by Australian skateboarder Oliver Percovich after kids in the streets of Kabul were using his own skateboard, he teaches the girls to "develop skills in skateboarding, leadership, civic responsibility, multimedia, and creative arts, exploring topics such as environmental health, culture/traditions, natural resources, and peace.”
