Homeless in Paradise
Homeless Children living in crisis

Project Hawai’i, Inc. is a nonprofit organization run 100% by volunteers and solely supported by public donations. Our mission is to help homeless children succeed and escape their cycle of poverty. We run a free summer educational program here on the islands of Hawai'i. With Covid we are not sure we will be able to run this as planned. Our plan is to provide our homeless keiki with fun activities that keep their minds active over the summer break. (if we can provide camp, we will still use your donation, so no worries!!)
With this in mind, we are seeking those who would like to put together packets. (great project for youth groups to do as well, or clubs, etc.)
These can be of your choice. (but we do ask not to be religious based, we have many different cultures on our island).
Because we won't be able to really assist the children with their activities, we need them to be simple assembly and individually separated for their use. Fun easy paper crafts, mixed mediums, even recycled material projects are perfect.
Without photos this is going to be a bit more complicated to explain. So, please feel free to connect with me for photos of some samples.

Our children are young and some have emotional and behind socially. Crafts should be geared towards K-2nd grade. 4-7 years old

REQUIREMENTS:

1. Will need to provide a total set of 24 projects if not gender specific. If geared towards male or female, then we need 12 of each.

2. Each craft/project will need to have all the supplies needed to complete. In most cases this will be glue, colors, etc. You need to include this in you packet. These children are homeless and most will not have access to such items on hand. So, if crayons are needed, you can put a few different colors in each bag, not the whole box per child. Glue sticks work perfect as well.
**** As well, you will need to prep the materials. For example, say you are making a paper collage fish, please cut out the fish, pre cut the fun paper shapes that they are using to glue on, and include the glue stick and a googly eye. (a perfect example of these style crafts is the way Oriental Trading presents their crafts)

3. Each project needs to have all the pieces in the package with a photo copy of what the completed project is to look like. Imagine if you are the child and have limited access to even parental support, and have this package in front of you to create a fun project. This is how it needs to be presented.

4. Please connect with us of what your project is, so we can be expecting it.

5. Please mail your packets to Project Hawai’i, Inc. P.O. Box 1844, Kea'au, HI 96749-1844 before July 10th

Mahalo for your consideration to help our homeless children learn and grow over this long summer break they are experiencing.

Description

Project Hawai'i, Inc., is a nonprofit organization run 100% by volunteers to enhance the lives of children living in poverty situations on the islands of Hawai'i. Our public supported charity works year round to provide necessities to children living in substandard housing situations, such as tents on the waters edge, abandon vehicles, and make-shift structures hidden in the bushes and hills.

Our agency provides children with holiday parties, meals and services for all the major holidays including Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Other monthly services include providing emergency support, hygiene, food, clothing and outreach to the children living in homeless situations on both the islands of Hawai'i and O'ahu.

Project Hawai'i also provides educational and nutritional programs that include after school reading and tutoring programs and our summer camp activities. Children will also receive full back to school support from new backpacks filled with supplies, new outfits, and shoes. We also provide other educational needs throughout the year.

Project Hawai'i Summer Camp has ran for 13 years and won several dozen awards in nutrition and educational support. This program is our largest endevor and evolves year after to year to include even more learning opportunities to our keiki.
