Hookuaaina Rebuilding Lives From The Ground Up

Kaiāulu (Volunteers) – Oct. 2021

Written By Makana Wilhelm, Outreach & Education Coordinator

Sophia (12) and Cale (15) are our youth volunteers at Kapalai

Meet our dedicated young volunteers Sophia (12yr) and Cael (15yr). Sophia is from Maunawili and has taken it upon herself to dedicate her Saturdays to building connections to the ʻāina, culture, and people here at Kapalai. She says, “There’s a lot of kids nowadays that are just glued to their phone all the time. Sometimes you just need to get outside and experience your own culture.”

Cael – living in Kāneʻohe, has taken it upon himself to learn more about the Hawaiian culture, team-work, and leadership through the cultivation of Kalo here at Kapalai. Cael says, “Apart from the agricultural knowledge being taught here, one of the deeper things you learn here is about teamwork, and about encouraging others to get the work done. You learn from people like Paul or Uncle Dean how to lead in different ways while still cultivating a really welcoming environment.”

Mahalo to these two for continuing to inspire and encourage us. The future is bright for this next generation.
