Over the past six years, 825 children on the Waiʻanae Coast, of which over 79 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 and more than $665,000 was put back into the pockets of families, through subsidies to pay for preschool tuition.
