The Hoʻopae Pono Peace Project seeks to build strength in the Hawaiian community, and in its connections with others, through culture-based support for the prevention and resolution of family and community issues, support for youth as nonviolent warriors, and promotion of nonviolent solution-building and activism.
We are an affiliate of the Seventh Generation Fund for Indian Development.
The project grew out of the NHBA/NHLC Peacemaking Project, which ran for four years on Oʻahu. Our old website can still be viewed here.
Our services are offered at no charge to families, due to cultural considerations; however, peacemaking does require work on everyone’s part. Our work is funded primarily through grants and private donations. We also receive in-kind assistance from professional community volunteers and services. Please contact us any time!
