Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Enchancing the lives of local homeless keiki one wish at a time. Our mission is make sure that no child is left out of the wonders of the holidays because their family is poor or homeless. We believe building self-esteem in children makes a better future for everyone. In addition, we help the mothers with educational workshops, job skills, and self-esteem, life-planning workshops.
Our programs run year round to provide emergency support to families who live in tents, cars, underpasses and in the sewer drain systems on the Island of Hawai'i and Oahu.
Our program is run 100% by volunteers and has been solely supported by the publics donations. With this in mind, our homeless and poverty stricken keiki (children) need your SUPPORT, in either means of volunteering or making a contribution towards needed suppplies. 100% of all donations directly impact the lives of children. No paid staff, no high overhead costs...every penny counts!! Mahalo for your support.
Project Hawai'i has merged with Christmas Wish Program, Inc to create a partnership and open new possibities to our homeless children. We provide a wide variety of services to the poverty stricken homeless children on the Big Island of Hawai'i and on Oahu. This is an island-wide outreach program. The families we help live in tents, under tarps or in old abandon rusty vehicles along the road sides, or in county parks or on the beaches. The living conditions of these children are very simular to a third world country; these children have staff infection due to lack of clean water to bathe, they have no running water, electricity or basic needs. Many children only eat when they go to school, so that leaves out the younger children. The list goes on. So, our program provides them with food, clothing, school supplies, tolietries, hot meals, blankets, tents, and other emergency needs. BUT our organization was not founded for that purpose, (our hearts lead us there and gave us no choice), and we still believe in the magic of Christmas to last throughout the year. So, we throw the BEST Christmas Parties ever complete with Santa and Me photos, games and prizes, Christmas Crafts, Gifts for everyone, candies, cakes, and a hot traditional dinner. This night of magic warms everyone's hearts especially the volunteers. Then we don't stop there, these children receive presents from Santa and a stocking filled with toys, candy and LOVE, along with new shoes and an outfit to open on Christmas Morning. With the Easter Bunny just around the corner, our volunteers gear up for an Easter Egg Hunt and Dinner party to knock their "socks" off, (if they had socks). Please visit our new website to see more exciting events we have lined up for their year. Christmas Wish Program is a nonprofit organization ran 100% by volunteers! So, 100% of your donations help the children; we do not get government or other grants, just public support like YOU!
Now that Project Hawai'i has merged with the teen mentoring program, our keiki are able to participate free of charge all summer long in their summer camp activiites. We provide a sleepover and day camp for children 4-7 years of age. Teens come from all over the US to mentor and help build self-esteem in these precious lives while gaining leadership and mentoring skills needed to succeed in their own future.
This camp of course like all our other programs is run 100% by volunteers and solely supported by public donations. Volunteers are always encouraged, and donors are always being sought to continue our efforts.
