Keiki O Ka Aina has many programs to help the community and strengthen families. One program helps to find volunteer mentors to mentor keiki with a daddy or mommy in prison. Other programs help to defray costs for preschool, and child care and other programs help to maintain and build healthy bonds between couples and their keiki. The organization and its participants has embarked upon making family poi boards and poi pounders, a traditional Hawaiian hale and an outrigger canoe. Learning by doing, helps families to bond, to forgive and to learn about each other. They bring so much joy to Kalihi Valley. My son and I were in Kulia I Ka Nu'u, a parent education workshop series to teach parents to be the best teacher they can be for their keiki. The lessons were immersed in Hawaiian cultural values such as family storytelling. I had the best kuma named Kamaile. She was full of grace, ideas and practical wisdom. My son, ohana and I have flourished with the love of the kumu and the lesson plans she helped to implement with us.
