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!

Special Education Vital Skills Recycle Project

Kapolei High School
Kapolei, Oʻahu

Kapolei High School’s “Special Education Vital Skills Recycle Project” encourages Special Education students to interact with their teachers and peers on campus. Participating students also learn valuable skills such as following a schedule, sorting by different materials, counting bottles and cans, and differentiating what can and cannot be recycled. This project encourages the campus staff and students to recycle more as their recycle bins are emptied on a regular basis. Additionally, the Special Education students take pride in their job as they contribute to keeping Kapolei High School an environmentally friendly campus.
