What People
Say About Us

Many of us have never talked about sex trafficking or understand what it is. We were able to learn about the signs to look for in our students, reasons why, and most importantly how to prevent this from happening to our students, school, and community. I feel like this presentation should be given to the whole school, every parent, and whole community because it's so valuable and necessary. All our teachers would like to see your presentation.

Lahainaluna, High School Teacher

As a physician, state leader and a father, keeping our keiki from being exploited is very important to me. We have been working closely with Ho‘ōla Nā Pua to bring awareness and create a coordinated effort to find solutions to this very serious issue. This is a public health and public safety issue, and we will continue to support Ho‘ōla Nā Pua’s efforts to keep our communities safe.”
