Skateboarding group brings together young girls in Ethiopia


Ethiopian Girl Skaters is a female-only skateboarding group that brings together young girls from different backgrounds, building a community that challenges the stereotype that girls shouldn't be involved in extreme sports like skateboarding. The project, founded by female skater, Sosina Challa, invites many young girls to spend their leisure time learning a new sport that helps them with their physical and mental health.
