I am traveling with Sole Girls and New Heights to work with Glasswing International on a two-day school renovation project, where we will revitalize a local school in an underserved neighborhood from start to finish.

Hello, My name is Andrea Rodriguez, I am 11 years old, I am a loving, enthusiastic girl who enjoys doing many things. Some of my favorite hobbies are dancing, skating, hiking and adventuring, I also love music, I play the violin, the ukulele and the clarinet. Je suis en eleve en le 6ieme ainée dans École Pauline Johnson dans Vancouver West. I love languages, I speak English, Français and Español. During my free time I enjoy being with my friends, relaxing, exploring and learning new things!! I live In North Vancouver with my mom, dad and sister who are always supporting me all the way!! I am a girl who wants to make a difference. I am always looking for new ways on how I can help people, and when I found out that Sole Girls and New Heights have this amazing project to go to Costa Rica and help other girls, I definitely found myself wanting to participate and go to meet and help other girls to become better and more self confident to strive in this world.

This trip is going to be made possible by Glasswing International, Sole Girls and New Heights. We will be going to Alajuela, Costa Rica in March 2018. I will be spending my spring break, not relaxing but helping out in a different country, how cool is that?! We will be going to an all-girls school helping to renovate it. Repairs include painting, cleaning and landscaping. As part of our journey, we will be bringing basketball balls, yoga mats and other game activities to play with the girls. The girls will also have a chance to show us their culture and their community. We will see how different it is over there compared to our Canada. We will be exploring with the girls as well. This is a great cause not just for helping the girls, but to learn what volunteering means and how it will shape our lives. 

I know you share my passion for life and for girls; this is why I would like you to consider making a donation to support our project, we can' not do it without you. Your donation will help towards the trip. Your contribution will help me reach my goal! With every donation of $10 or more, you just got me that much closer to exceeding my goal!!

I would also like you to share this link on any page you have, to send it to your friends who love to help out, tell your friends. Make sure everyone you know is aware of my project. Tell them to spread the word. It doesn't matter if you only contribute $10, it only matters that you do it!!

Thank You, Merci beaucoup, Muchas gracias !!!

Sole Girls  and New Heights is going on an Adventure to Costa Rica.

We will be working with Glasswing International, where we will revitalize a local school in an underserved neighborhood from start to finish.

Glasswing's philosophy is to improve on existing infrastructures in schools, hospitals and community centers, rather than building new ones. Their concept is simple: foster change by investing in a community’s existing strengths and resources – its infrastructure and its people.

We will work alongside local community members and students to paint the walls, garden, provide new learning materials, paint murals and help with basic renovations that will transform the school into a better learning environment for the students to learn and grow.
