Outdoor education

Through outdoor education clubs in schools, we teach children the importance of caring for the environment and the joy of outdoor recreation. 

Our club program

Aiming to build an understanding and appreciation of the outdoors in school children, our club program teaches important life skills and develops a lifelong connection with the outdoors. 
The club program is delivered by the participants on our leadership program. Passing on the specialist knowledge and skills learnt from the course, these young women give back to the community and help widen the positive impact of outdoor education throughout Afghanistan. 
Learn about the various modules of our outdoor education in schools program.
  • Promoting curiosity and exploration, we share our passion and knowledge of the outdoors through engaging sessions about ecology, conservation and wildlife. We teach the importance of protecting the environment and show the delicacy of Afghanistan's ecological systems. 

  • From fire lighting to fun-packed orienteering games, we teach valuable life skills in short and easy to digest sessions. With an emphasis on how to stay safe in the outdoors, we aim to give children the confidence to explore their incredible country.

  • Capturing children's natural inclination to explore, whilst also promoting exercise and well-being, our day hikes take school children on an epic adventure to the outdoors. With river crossings and wildlife spotting, our hikes create memories for life.

  • We bring the importance of teamwork to life with practical sessions to highlight group roles, leadership styles and communication skills. We emphasis the importance of listening and demonstrate what can be achieved by working as a collective.
