In Hindi, “basti” means crowded area or village. At Skate Basti Foundation, we are creating a community space for young people where they can get come together and get inspired to pursue their dreams.
Our vision is to build and utilize skateparks anchored with art, play and education as the centerpiece to empower young people in underserved communities.
Together we can transform a generation of children by building community projects and programs that impact their development and education.
Our mission is to build community skateparks in unconventional spaces that create opportunity for underserved youth and tap into that energy to bring about change at the individual and community levels.
