Khempur village, Rajasthan, India

A few years ago my good friend @kanchenindelhi sent me a link for a film called Skater Girl. She thought my avid skateboarder son Nico and I would enjoy it. And we did! The movie combines skateboarding, female empowerment and India, so what more could we ask for in a film? The images and scenery were beautiful and the storyline inspiring.



Fast forward to Spring 2022 when I started thinking about finally returning to India after almost 3 long (covid) years. I knew I wanted to travel to new rural communities in Rajasthan that would benefit from our workshops and kit distribution. Skater Girl immediately came to mind so I did some research online and found the site of the skatepark that was built for the movie: @desertdolphinskatepark. I wrote the contact email and waited for a reply.


A few weeks later I actually found their reply in my junk folder... I quickly responded and the ball started rolling. They were interested in the work we do and said it would fit in perfectly with the outreach programme connected to https://www.desertdolphinskatepark.com/.


Finally, after months of planning, we arrived to meet @vinatimak and @_palakdshah_. We met the community and under the guidance of @vinatimak, we delivered Days for Girls kits to a few hundred young girls and women.


It was a great experience that led to more collaboration in the year to come.
