Ludo for a good cause… Skateistan.

Not only is this street piece by Ludo seriously nice…

…but you can now own a hand drawn version of it and its for a good cause! WTF? Amazing. heres the details from the horses mouth…

I am just back from a quick break to take the time to work on something i really wanted to do, trying to raise some cash for an independant organization based in Kabul called Skateistan.
“Operating as an independent, neutral, Afghan NGO, the school engages growing numbers of urban and internally-displaced youth in Afghanistan through skateboarding, and provides them with new opportunities in cross-cultural interaction, education, and personal empowerment. Skateistan students come from all of Afghanistan diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. They not only develop skills in skateboarding and skateboarding instruction, but also healthy habits, civic responsibility, information technology, the arts, and languages. The students themselves decide what they want to learn—we connect them with teachers who will enable them to develop the skills that they consider important. Since Skateistan has been active in Kabul, we’ve seen that Afghan youth of all ethnicities, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds love to skateboard. Skateistan brings them together, equipping young men and women with the skills to lead their communities toward social change and development.”
