I'm Oliver Percovich, the founder of Skateistan. Skateistan is non-profit that uses skateboarding as a tool for development in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa. AMA!
I'm a skater from Melbourne, Australia. I grew up in Papua New Guinea and have been skateboarding since 1980. I've travelled to over 45 countries and lived in Afghanistan since 2007. I never thought that I would be the Director of a non-profit and it definitely was not my plan going to Afghanistan. Some local girls and boys started skating and it all grew from there.
We currently have a fundraising drive called 'Keep Skateistan Rolling', and we appreciate all your support!
