Dear DIY Skatepark Donors, …
Dear DIY Skatepark Donors,

The Skateistan team would like to thank you for your donation to our outdoor skatepark fundraiser and let you know that thanks to your support we have been able to build Skateistan’s 1st outdoor skatepark in Afghanistan.

Originally planed in Kabul for 2012, our outdoor DIY skatepark project was unfortunately delayed due to a women's sports facility being built by the Afghan Olympic committee on some of the land we intended to build it on. Therefore, we had to adapt our plan and decided to build the outdoor skatepark on the land of our newest facility in Mazar-e-Sharif, Northern Afghanistan.

The skatepark’s construction took place over the past few months and allowed us to officially open it on the 23rd of October 2014. It is already being used by more than 430 students each week, including more 47% girls. Thanks to a grant from the German government, Skateistan’s new outdoor plaza was built together with a green space that includes gardens and outdoor learning areas. Skateistan’s students and youth leaders were involved in the planning and design of the skatepark, as well as in the planting of trees for the plaza.

Also, we are very pleased to share this blog post with you, where you will find pictures of the new outdoor skatepark and also a list of all the donors to this project who did not donate anonymously.

Thanks again for joining us in this project and sharing our vision of providing safe spaces for learning and play to Afghanistan's girls and boys.

Best regards,

The Skateistan Team
