Our Impact

Network partners and their staff have engaged in examining their own perceptions of Hawaiʻi’s Soul and the actions they are taking to perpetuate Hawaiʻi’s values in their respective organizations. Facilitated conversations and outreach have and continue to draw our collaborative solutions to create the future we want for Hawaiʻi. Here are a few examples:

St. Andrew’s Schools

Strengthen St. Andrew’s focus on integrating Queen Emma’s legacy and teachings using Rediscovering Hawai‘i’s Soul tools and practices.

Hawai‘i Community Assets + American Savings Bank

Through an RHS convening, a partnership was formed that focuses on community and ‘āina by addressing the urgent need for Native Hawaiian housing on the front and back end. American Savings Bank (ASB) contributes to Hawai‘i Community Assets’ revolving loan program to provide construction loans to families. Beneficiaries are then able to access ASB’s home loan program once the home is built.

County of Hawai‘i

The County utilized the tools and practices of Rediscovering Hawai‘i’s Soul to strengthen their commitment to Pehea Ka ‘Āina. Their goal is to build internal capacity by creating communities of practice. Through a series of RHS/County partnered workshops, five action areas were identified: ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘I, Knowing Our Place, Strengthening Pilina, Pehea Ka ‘Āina and Regenerative Governance, and Growing a Culture of Kuleana. The County is partnering with UH and the Edith Kanaka‘ole Foundation to embed these processes in County practices.
