During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
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

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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
