Pisa is a Counsellor with Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland. She’s a happiness mega-bomb and love helping people around her.
Since 2011, Climb and Conquer has been a helpful resource to our matches as most of our clients are from low-income families. Our clients normally don’t have the resource to participate in costly activities like rock climbing. With the assistance of Climb and Conquer, our clients and volunteers have access to these low-cost rock climbing sessions at four locations in the Greater Vancouver. Our matches have learnt the basic climbing techniques from the patient and well-trained volunteer climbers. The matches have learnt the importance of persistence and setting reachable goals.
A big sister once shared that her little sister has grown so much because of this given opportunity. The match participated rock climbing on a regular basis for a period of time. At first, the little sister was reluctant to try new activity. With the encouragement of the big sister and the volunteers of Climb and Conquer, she conquered her fear and started climbing. At the end of the participating time, the little sister was able to reach the top. Rock climbing is not only a healthy activity but also build a stronger character through setting step by step goal. It is truly an amazing opportunity for our clients and volunteers. We really appreciate all the volunteers who make this possible.
