We have finally gotten our non-profit status. We need your help to continue teaching and making paʻiʻai available in our communities. Thus far our voyage has been for the most part self funded and although times maybe tight, we continually live being blessed. In order for this movement to continue to grow our non-profit has been created as an avenue to acquire land and water to grow kalo and umbrella the kalo pounding clubs across the islands. If you would like to be apart of this, please contact us email@example.com or 808 542-1326.
