Hookuaaina Rebuilding Lives From The Ground Up

Donate

Fifteen years ago, we dreamed of creating a gathering place where people could connect with and care for the ‘āina (land), grow and prepare traditional foods, and bring health and healing to youth and families of Windward O‘ahu. When we began clearing the dense hau bush that covered our 8 acres of ‘āina back then, we knew that passion alone couldn’t manifest our vision. As we share with the youth in our programs, ʻaʻohe hana nui ke alu ʻia, no task is too great when accomplished together by all. Help us continue the journey of restoring our ʻāina and community to health and abundance. Your
kōkua, your support, is everything.

Participants in the Hoʻokuaʻāina Kūkuluhou Mentoring program participate in video voice projects giving them the opportunity to share what they have learned in the program from their own perspective. It is essential to let their voice be heard and for them to know that their words have meaning. Along with their on-camera interview, we provided them with cameras to document their daily lives while in the program. Our goal with this project was to give them an opportunity to express themselves through a visual piece. It gives them an additional medium to share more about themselves with a creative platform while having some fun in the process.
