Partner’s In Development Foundation - Tūtū and Me Traveling Preschool


In Hawai‘i, the use of older family members to care for children ages birth to five years old, is a very familiar practice. Grandparents, or tūtū, are often the primary caregivers of their young grandchildren because of socio-economic conditions, as well as the value of ‘ohana (family).

Tūtū and Me aims to identify, recruit, and service this undeserved segment of the Native Hawaiian population through an innovative traveling preschool program done in cooperation with churches and community organizations serving the Hawaiian and part-Hawaiian community. Tūtū and Me aims to meet the developmental needs of these young children and to support the grandparents as well as parents and other primary caregivers who are raising them.

Teaching teams, comprised of early education educators, travel to pre-selected communities where they set up, conduct, and facilitate the program. The curriculum is organized around learning themes and cultural aspects, as well as those values that continue to influence the lives of native Hawaiian children, are also incorporated into the curriculum. Today, this traveling preschool program reaches hundreds of children and their caregivers through a hands-on curriculum provided at six communities on the island of O‘ahu, ten communities on the Big Island, four on Kaua‘i, two communities on Molokai and four communities on Maui.

This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the Kamehameha Schools.

Pulama I Na Keiki - Cherish the Children (Kaunakakai)


Program Purpose
To help families of Hawaiian children prepare them for educational success.

Program Services
The program offers prenatal and infant/toddler services including home visits, workshops and parent/toddler groups. Our parent educators provide:
(1) Culturally relevant information on prenatal health, childbirth, child development and child rearing.
(2) Activities that help families encourage their children's interest in learning.
(3) Links to community resources.

Program Philosophy
Parents and the extended family are a child's first teachers and the home is a child's first classroom. Early experiences carry over into a child's educational experiences.

Parents want their children to succeed. By building on family and cultural strengths, they can increase their knowledge and understanding of factors that contribute to their children's educational success.

Program Participation
Our goal is to work with families of Hawaiian and part-Hawaiian children as early as possible. Preference is given to families with or expecting a first of second child.

Prenatal services: Hapai women, preferably in first trimester.

Infant/Toddler Services: Children up to six months of age.

Queen Lili’uokalani Children’s Center (Molokai)


The Queen’s Deed of Trust, as amended, lays the foundation for our work to care for and support orphan and destitute children, with preference for Hawaiian children in Hawaii. We will fulfill this mission by working with our partners and the `Ohana to support the development of healthy and resilient children.

Our approach to honoring the legacy of the Queen is based on the philosophy of community building which is consonant with Hawaiian cultural and spiritual values. The following principles of community building guide all of our work:
  • We believe in building and sustaining trusting relationships
  • We believe in the capacity of people
  • We seek to build upon the strengths and assets in people
  • We believe in self determination
  • We believe in partnerships and collaboration as a way to maximize resources
  • We value the process as much as the outcome
In order to maximize our impact we have decided to focus our efforts on strengthening families so that they are better able to support the development of healthy, resilient children.

Agency Outcomes:
  • Healthy children whose needs are met by a consistent, nurturing caregiver so that the children can reach their full potential
  • Strong positive family attachment built on a cultural and spiritual foundation
  • Stable home environment
  • Caring communities that are concerned about the welfare of their children

Agency Strategy:
  • Assets based
  • Cultural context focused on relationship building
  • Partnership and collaboration
Three Modes of Service:
  • Individual and Family Support assist children who have suffered a significant loss or whose family may be challenged in maintaining a consistently caring and nurturing environment. Examples of this service include grief counseling to cope with the death of a parent; casework to assure that basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter are met; and support to family caregivers who are providing a home for children unable to live with their parents.
  • Group Services offers help to children and those influential in their lives such as parents and grandparents to support and educate them in areas of interest or concern. Groups are formed around a variety of topics that benefit children, including: parenting grief/loss issues, support to grandparents raising grandchildren, leadership development, and Hawaiian cultural values and practices.
  • Community Building Services use a long-term approach that focuses on supporting the social capacity of people residing within a geographic area. We help residents strengthen the systems of care available to orphan and destitute children in their neighborhoods by fostering relationships with other resources and partners in the community.

YWCA Sex Assault Crisis (Molokai)


The YWCA of Hawaiʻi Island is dedicated to changing the beliefs that accompany sexual violence. We seek to create a society that does not minimize sexual crimes, that does not permit the shaming or silencing of the assaulted or hide the crime out of shame – a society where perpetrators are held accountable, mandated for treatment and prevented from offending again. Since the 1970s, we have provided response programs to victims of sexual assault known as Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS), Sexual Assault Response and Advocacy Services (SARAH) and Empowering Alternatives program (EAp). The YWCA offers support services for victims and their families: • Free, confidential counseling • Crisis intervention • Emotion and moral support • Support during a medical exam and the legal process • Assistance in deciding whether to file a police report • Therapeutic services • 24-hour crisis line • Community education, awareness and prevention activities What is sexual assault? Sexual assault is any unwanted, forced, tricked or coerced sexual activity; it occurs when one does not give consent to the sexual activity or is unable to. Sexual contact without consent is a crime. What does it mean to consent? Consent is when one person agrees to or gives permission to another person to do something. In this case, you understand what something is and what it involves. You are a willing participant in the act and are comfortable every step of the way. What is not consent? Remaining silent, not responding or submitting out of fear is not consent. Consent should never be implied or assumed.
