Females riding bikes in Afghanistan is seen to be offensive and taboo, but thanks to a non-profit called Skateistan, these girls have been gifted a new way to have fun on wheels.

Inspired to help marginalized youth feel empowered, Skateistan uses skateboarding to help rescue kids from the streets and transition them into a community inspired to teach them about leadership and independence.
