BENEFITING: SKATEISTAN

THE STORY:

The Afghan NGO Skateistan wants to add an outdoor skate area for its students in Kabul and needs your help. The plan is to construct a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) concrete skatepark on a 350 sq meter section of land directly behind Skateistan's indoor skatepark facility. This will be the first concrete skatepark in Kabul, and will give Afghanistan's rising skateboard talent a safe new venue to skate and have fun at. High fencing around the property will also allow the girls of Skateistan a rare opportunity to skate outside in privacy.

This park will be a work in progress, depending on fundraising progress and the weather. The goal is to lay the smooth concrete surface this fall and begin building obstacles immediately afterwards. Designs for the area have been provided by professional skatepark designer Wade Trevean (Australia). The outdoor park will be supervised by trained Skateistan instructors and student volunteers.

The estimated budget for Skateistan's DIY outdoor skatepark is 5000 USD, which includes materials, tools, equipment and labour for the concrete slab and the skate obstacles, as well as fencing supplies. The obstacles will be built by volunteers in Kabul who have previous experience in DIY skatepark construction.

$10 per bag of cement (total $1,500 for all cement ramps)
$200 for reinforcing bar
$300 for tools and other necessary supplies
$3,000 to have a flat smooth concrete slab laid, including labor (about 350 sq meter)

Please share this fundraiser link to your friends online, and if you'd like to hold a real-life fundraiser (ie. skate jam) in support of this project please contact info@skateistan.org for Skateistan's fundraising package. We appreciate your support in giving the kids in Kabul a concrete learning ground.
