Kalanihale came to life from a simple but creative idea.


This idea was to provide better access to education with the focus to start a charter school in Milolii.  

We had been doing youth and community projects and programs for the past 20 years. So essentially we had already started a foundation for this initiative.

The goal for Kalanihale is to deliver even greater good for the communities of Milolii and South Kona.  Our work with the education of the youth here has given us vision for many more cultural and creative programs to implement over the next five years.

The experience of working with these youth groups within the ages of 13 and 14 has cumulated in a life long mission of finding a voice.


Now that we are in our 20's and 30's we are focusing on building a strong network of educational projects to elevate the people of rural South Kona.

embrace - educate - empower

To improve the educational, environmental, and cultural well-being of community members of Milolii and South Kona.

If you are a student, a parent, a community leader, or resident of the area interested in getting involved we welcome you to contact Kalanihale.  


Together we can make a difference.
