Skateboarding has been part of youth culture for decades in many countries. But in Cambodia, however, it has only arrived recently.

An organisation called Skatestan has just opened the country’s first skate park, with the aim of helping current and former street children gain confidence through learning the new sport.

Skatestan do fantastic work with Friends-International and Mith Samlanh. The team are totally correct in saying the sport acts as a tool to entice street children to come into centres such as Mith Samlanh and PSE.
