Aloha & Welcome to our website...thank you for your interest in HAIA’s efforts by EMPOWERING the lives of our youth. Each individual is provided with tools necessary to make Literacy a priority, achieve graduation from High School, and ultimately a detailed road map towards their success. Through Academics and Athletics, we challenge the students in accomplishing their goals & dreams in working towards Higher Education.
HAIA’s focus will be our children ages 8-21 yrs of age. More so from the demographics of the economically disadvantaged area on Oahu’s Leeward Coast; Nanakuli, Maili, Waianae, and Makaha communities whose population which is plagued with Drugs, Teen Age Pregnancy, 50% High School Drop Out ratio, & Homelessness.
We have lofty goals of a 100% High School Graduation & 100% College Graduates. From the children that enter into our program, many will even say UNREALISTIC...but we here at the HAIA FOUNDATION believe that every single child deserves a chance to succeed in life. We are here to reverse and stop the poverty & economic stranglehold that has plagued these communities for multiple generations. How will we accomplish this? By EMPOWERING & EDUCATING our Children by enlisting the help of Professionals, Community Involvement & Corporate Support & assign individual Mentors/Life Coaches that will shadow these children from the day they enter into our program until they Graduate from College
This website is a great resource to delve into, to learn about our Projects & Programs and most importantly, it will show you how it is that we as an organization will make a difference in the lives of hundreds of underprivileged & “At Risk” children on the Leeward Coast of Oahu. As you learn about our Mission & Programs, peer into the lives of our "Future Leaders". We hope it will inspire you to get involved with The HAIA FOUNDATION as a mentor, volunteer or by making a financial contribution to ensure the program's long term success.
