ʻĀINA In Schools

ʻĀINA Schools

Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation staff currently works directly with ʻĀINA Teams at 15 Oʻahu elementary schools to implement the ʻĀINA In Schools program. In 2013 an additional 21 teachers from 12 schools attended our Garden-Based Learning and Nutrition Education trainings and will be bringing these lessons to their students this year.

While we are not currently accepting applications for new participating schools in the program, any school or educator may utilize the many resources we have available, including ʻĀINA In Schools curricula, trainings, resource guides, workshops, KHF Mini-Grants, and KHF Field Trip Grants.
