About the Program
In Hawaiʻi, our partners promote well-being through cultural initiatives that involve children, youth, and families. We make investments in long-term, committed partnerships from Hawaiʻi Island to Kauaʻi, bolstering internal programming and operational capacities. With our partners, we aim for reciprocity, equity, and transparency.
Committed leaders and organizations rooted in the lands and communities they serve make up our small but dynamic cohort. Through holistic direct engagement, these leaders and their teams demonstrate great dedication and aloha for their communities. This engagement, while diverse and community-driven, honors culture and creates safe spaces for healing, learning and growth. Relationships are key; land and culture are agents of change, transformation and restoration.
