Over the past three years, 365 children on the Waiʻanae Coast, of which over 80 percent are Native Hawaiian, were successfully enrolled in early childhood education programs with the help of Hoʻāla recruiters. Since 2011, these recruiters have helped to boost preschool enrollment along the entire Waiʻanae Coast from 85 percent to 103 percent, and $350,000 went back into the pockets of fifty-nine families through preschool subsidies.
About the Program
Hoʻāla by INPEACE is designed to connect Native Hawaiian families with children ages 0–5 to provide valuable information and guidance about early childhood education programs.
