Taking Action...How We Are Changing the World
Here are some ways that Aina Haina students are making a difference in the world
Adopt a Village - Sri Lanka
From 2012 - 2017, we helped a village in Sri Lanka, Nallathanniya, obtain a filtered water system and better education for their children. We also exchanged pictures with the villagers.
This was a five year project with local business Eden in Love. We donated a portion of our Fall Festival and Book Fair proceeds to this cause.
Lemm Elementary (Texas)
Lemm Elementary School in Texas was badly damaged from flooding from Hurricane Harvey in August 2017. Their school library lost the entire collection and the building was rebuilt.
Read an article that our 5th graders wrote explaining how we supported this school through our Fall Festival and Book Fair fundraisers.
Stay tuned to learn how we plan to use our donation money collected at the Spring 2018 Book Fair. We raised $450 with the lollipop game! We plan to help the Aina Haina Public Library recover from flooding damage and the Hawaiian Humane Society by sponsoring pet adoptions.
Mahalo to our community partner the Koko Head Lions Club for sponsoring the lollipop game and providing manpower to make this possible.
