Hi! My name is Ashley and I am the founder of SoleGirls.org. I started Sole Girls in 2013 with the goal of connecting girls with fun physical activity, positive mental health and mentors. I was dealing with my own mental health - anxiety, body image issues and self esteem. When a girl from my city committed suicide at age 15, I realized I needed to do something. Sole Girls is everything that i wanted at ages 8-12 - inclusion, connection, mentors, tools to love myself, and FUN physical activity.

Believe it or not, the girls who started Sole Girls with me have grown up and now they are in 11-15years old and becoming mentors to younger girls (SOLE awesome!!!!)

I want to do something special now to show girls that they are global citizens and the world is a big amazing place where anything is possible and the key to that is showing up and living our core values, and being of service.

So I'm planning on taking 15 girls and 15 leaders to Costa Rica, on our very first Sole Adventure. We will work to reform a school, connect with kids and community, do workshops, yoga, fun physical activity and SOLE much more! This will be the chance of a lifetime for some girls and may actually change their lives. I can't wait to be a part of it.

In order to make this dream come true, I need your help. The more I raise, the more we can donate to the school and the project!! Want to be a part of a dream and change lives too?

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.
