Our first project in August of 2016, provided copies of the book Aloha – What it Means to My ʻOhana and Yours, 1st Edition for grades 1-5 at Kanuikapono Charter School in Anahola on the island of Kauaʻi.
We are in the process of expanding "Building Character through Aloha" an “Aloha” class program at elementary schools throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
The goal is to help provide schools with books for Aloha class programs which support Nā Hopena Aʻo, State Standards, and incorporates a Social/Emotional component known as "Building Character through Aloha". The book revolves around culture, traditions, and building character through the 14 lessons of Aloha.
The current programs are geared towards the kamaliʻi (children), but will eventually branch out to meet and support the needs of teens and adults.
We have just released our Curriculum/Teachers guides for both Aloha Books, made possible through generous donations from local, national and international businesses and community members.
