Knowledge born on the streets: StreetwiZe empowers street-dwelling children through a very unique business model
We at THE SKATEROOM are big fans of StreetwiZe. The work this Belgium-born, globally-operating, organization does to empower children on the streets through education is inspiring to say the least.
Over the eight years we’ve been funding Skateistan’s mission to educate young people around the world through skateboarding, a lot has changed. Immense growth, thousands of smiling faces, and even an Oscar-winning documentary. But no change has been so dramatic as the one that took place in August 2021, when Taliban forces seized control of Afghanistan once again. The Taliban is making the future of woman in Afghanistan uncertain.
His two older siblings were born in India, a country that he’s visited often, and he never travels without a deck – or his camera. In June 2021, his twin passions came together in the most intense trip of his life: a six week volunteer placement in Jamaica. Arriving at Kingston’s new Freedom Skatepark (a Concrete Jungle Foundation project which THE SKATEROOM funded back in 2020), Jago started teaching photography, skating and set about filming for what would become the sensational Freedom To Flourish documentary. Had he imagined what community he would find growing in the midst of a global pandemic? We wanted to find out.
THE SKATEROOM’s extremely-limited, hand-touched pieces – by ‘the most influential skateboarder of all time’ – is now LIVE!
Three is the magic number. In this, our third collaboration with Rhode, we once again unite the artist with award-winning international organization Skateistan under THE SKATEROOM’s social entrepreneurship model. 10% of all revenue from this collection will go directly and without restriction to operations at the Johannesburg skatepark we helped build back in 2016.
We’re celebrating a new turn in our collaboration with Concrete Jungle Foundation NGO and sealing a new formal partnership to support their growth.
