Award-winning non-profit organization Skateistan opens a second skateboard facility in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with a mission to make the sport accessible to children and provide an active educational platform. The school consists of a skate park, classroom, library, as well as a large green space for other activities. So far, Skateistan has reported that 240 youth are participating in the program, 53% of which are girls.

With this skateboard facility, the not-for-profit organization is truly bringing changes and making art, as well as the sport more accessible in and outside Cambodia. The Skateroom project is entirely funded by a limited edition collection by British-based artist Grayson Perry and a collaborative project with the Andy Warhol Foundation.

The educational skateboard facility is a true testament of what an organization and the public can do to support each other through art.
