2012 Grand Winner
I just wanted to say without the help of Women of Wai'anae I would not have graduated with an Associates degree in Early Childhood Education from Honolulu Community College in May of 2014. I am currently the Teacher/Director at Keiki O Ka Aina Preschool and Infant and
Toddler Center at the Ka Pua Site. The kokua from WOW has encouraged, inspired and catapulted me to a level of understanding regarding, 'It takes a village to raise a family'. This concept is what WOW embraces and exemplifies in our Wai'anae kaiaulu! Deep in my na'au I know this value is what is displayed in me as I service the families of the Wai'anae Coast and this is what WOW has taught me - to pass it down and raise up more ohana in our village of Wai'anae.
