As a teacher here on Maui, the Keiki Cupboard is a welcomed and valuable resource to our students' success in education. The Keiki Cupboard has been able to provide the essential items for young children to ensure their academic success. Due to the ever changing and difficult economy that we live in, our students are not always equipped with the right tools to aide in their learning. Often times, their parents have to decline purchasing school supplies just so that they can provide for their families. Keiki Cupboard makes it possible for each kid to feel confident and not worry about the stressors of life, but rather focus on gaining the knowledge and power to grow in their learning. *Mahalo*
Every child should feel worthy, and one cannot when they don't have the hygeine, clothes or school supplies to spend a proper day at school. Keiki cupboard fills greatly needed support for the child to succeed.
