Foundation for Women Executive Director Deborah Lindholm was on hand at Elwa Skateboard Academy in Monrovia, Liberia on International Go Skate Day to celebrate the amazing progress of program participants. Check out their amazing progress over the past few months going from their flat, basketball court learning area to the open road. Skateboarding in Liberia is providing a fun new focus for kids, building camaraderie between students and introducing a much needed additional mode of transport. From the confident slaloms to the skateboard handstand, some of them look like they've been skating for years already!
