Teachers from Hawai’i public schools can apply for Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Project Grants to help advance their environmental education goals. Previous grantees have used KHF funds for garden supplies, eco-footprint workshops, vermicompost trainings, and more. One school has raised enough worms to start a commercial-scale vermicomposting bin for their campus food waste!

Building a Healthier Campus:  Mind, Body and Community

Holy Nativity School
Honolulu, HI

Holy Nativity School’s (HNS) mission for academic years 2012-2014 is to move toward a healthier campus in mind. (i.e. improve the rigor of the education by promoting out of classroom and project-based learning), body (i.e, address the way our children understand nutrition and engage in movement noth on and off campus), and community (i.e, working to make the campus more “green” for the godd of the student and the greater East Oahu region through green initiatives and community service). For this application, HNS seeks Kokua Hawaii Foundation’s help to support the “community” component, mainly to contribute the school’s initiative to help reduce the campus’s contribution of land-based run-off in an effort to help improve the health of Maunalua Bay.
