We just discovered A Future on Wheels, a longboarding project in Cambodia, that teamed-up with local NGO OBT (Organization for the basic training) to bring longboarding to children from the rural area of Chiro Village with limited access to talent-developing activities and get the opportunity to discover and develop their talents through longboarding, which can also contribute to personal development. The project will operate from September 10th until November 10th 2017.
A Future on Wheels was created by Culiba Ballesta Torres, Jildou Dammers and Jay Alexis Nieto Ramirez. Please check out this video explaining why and how it was created and what they aim for.
At the moment they are still recruiting hardware for the project, so please click HERE and contribute with whatever you have. Old boards, wheels, trucks, safety gear… everything counts!
