New UNICEF podcast: Skateistan - Learning and skateboarding in Kabul, Afghanistan
- 69 Posts
In 2007, Oliver Percovich landed in Kabul with nothing more than a couple of skateboards. Having learned to skateboard when he was 6 years old, Mr. Percovich had embraced the sport as a big part of his personality. But he never thought that this passion would lead to the creation of one of the most beloved projects in Afghanistan – Skateistan, a place where girls and boys go to skate and receive an education.
In this installment, UNICEF’s podcast moderator Femi Oke spoke with Oliver Percovich, Skateistan’s Founder and Executive Director and Benafsha Tasmim, Educational and Cultural advisor to Skateistan’s team in Kabul.
