Daily life in Palestine is difficult to say the least. For more than six decades, Palestine has been the global focal point of intractable conflict, one that has led to one of the world’s most widely reported yet least understood human rights crises.
Few people have suffered more constant misery and daily oppression in the last 50 years than the Palestinians.
SkatePal is a non-profit organisation that works with communities throughout Palestine to enhance the lives of young people and promote the benefits of skateboarding.
Run by a committed team of local and international volunteers who, through teaching skate classes, building skateparks and providing equipment, Skatepal is enabling an ever-growing number of Palestinian skaters to empower themselves and inspire the next generation of Palestinian youth.
