Women Skate the World’s Nanja Van Rijsse and Amber Edmondson volunteered with SkatePal in April and May 2018 at our skatepark in Asira ash-Shamaliya, Palestine.

They quickly proved to be extremely competent during their time with us and not only took a lead in classes but were very proactive in developing the program. They approached their work with cultural sensitivity and have a sustainable vision for what they want to achieve. It was a pleasure to have them out in Palestine, and I look forward to seeing them go out again next year. I have very high hopes for the future of WSTW, and what they are planning to accomplish!
