About us ...
‘Walk with Us’ was established by a group of Nelson/Tasman women who wanted to contribute something positive to the community in a targeted and specific way.
Following discussions with local school and teachers, and researching similar organisations in New Zealand, the group decided that providing school and sports footwear fitted well with their goals and aspirations as well as community need.

Good governance, planning, strategy and budgeting
