First Step Outdoors

07 September 2023


First Step Outdoors, an outdoor education provider based in the Waikato region, is providing opportunities and safe spaces for rangatahi to try outdoor activities in a safe and supportive environment.

In this latest initiative and together with WOWMA (Women's Organisation of the Waikato Muslim Association), First Step Outdoors is connecting young Muslim women (aged 16-26) to the outdoors in Aotearoa.

Over a one-day Eid Adventure Day, Muslim women and girls undertook kayaking and a high ropes course.

First Step Outdoors partnered with WOWMA and Yasmina Community Trust to create the programme, with support from the He Puna Korikori (Outdoor Activity Fund), a Sport NZ contestable fund managed and administered by Recreation Aotearoa. 

The Fund was designed to support activities and programmes that connect rangatahi with outdoor recreation.

To find out more about He Puna Korikori visit Recreation Aotearoa.
