Mission Statement

Our vision is to help end the cycle of poverty by building the self esteem and life skills needed to succeed in the future.

"Making Foot Prints in the Hawaiian Sands Worth Following" is what we strive to live by....


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 3 of the islands of Hawai'i, the Big Island (Hawai'i), Mau'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 15 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.

Children are the future of our world, and our world right now is not in the right position to provide for them by itself. They need US.

Aloha, My experience with this organization over the past years have been wonderful. I am so happy to be able to make a difference in the children living in poverty on our islands. Although this program is run by volunteers without any budget, it is one of the wonderful experiences I have ever experienced. It is such a great place for people who want to make a difference in the lives of children. There are so many things that need to be done in order for the children to receive all the benefits they get. I am glad I am part of this experience and this change for a better life. Project Hawai'i makes my life more enjoyable as well as the children I help. So, if you have a day, a few hours, or a bunch of extra time, this is a great way to spend it. Get involved and make a life long change!!

This was one of the best experiences of my life. The children where so great and to think I was able to be a part of their lives if only for a minute. The volunteer directors and staff are also so great to work with. The organization is a bit "too big" for their resources so it does tend to get hectic. You can tell the director provides more than she can really afford. But it is such a wonderful put together program to be involved with. Hopefully others will help, donate, or just volunteer. Your time is more valuable than you know, and believe me!! Your life changes when you touch the hearts of these wonderful homeless keiki (children)
