Young girls in Hawaii are ordered online, purchased in massage parlors, and put out on the street to generate business for sex traffickers.
It is our responsibility to join together and put a stop to this exploitation of our keiki.
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month and Hoʻōla Nā Pua is challenging our supporters and community members to collectively raise their voices and take action about this dark reality.
In recognition of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Hoʻōla Nā Pua is excited to announce the official launch of our “Awareness With a Purpose” campaign. The goal of our campaign is to raise the funds and volunteer hours needed to build the nurturing home where this underage population can heal from their trauma.
The core mission of “Awareness With a Purpose” is to grow our “$1000 From 1000”sustaining donor base. If we get 1000 individuals, businesses, churches, small groups, and other organizations to each pledge $1000 per year (via monthly or annual recurring donations), we will have the reliable base of funds needed to build and maintain this home.
