Waiākea Water Kōkua Initiative
'A 'ohe hana nui ke alu 'ia
No task is too big when done together by all
The Waiākea Water Kōkua Initiative is committed to empowering the people of Hawaii through a 3 piko approach that encourages educational opportunities, 'āina-based conservation & sustainability, and support for the most vulnerable in our community.
Three Piko Approach
Piko 'ī: Po'o - Head
Serving our Kūpuna, or elders, and promoting cultural preservation
Piko 'ī represents an ancestral connection to the past–to those that came before us–and the value of Aloha.
Piko 'ō: Waena - Central
Serving and empowering our community, including promoting conservation and sustainability, health and wellness, and volunteer services.
Piko 'ō represents the naval connection to our source of life, to honor & respect our parents, and the wisdom we inherit from them; how we connect with the world we live in.
Piko 'ā: Ma'i - Future
Serving our youth by supporting educational opportunities, workshops, and internships.
Piko 'ā represents the creative and procreative connection to the future, to our future generations.
It’s a Kākou Thing
Each purchase directly funds our Kōkua Initiative, allowing us to donate food and water, basic hygiene supplies, volunteer hours, and much more, to support the people of Hawai'i.
See What We Did In 2021
The community on the Big Island graciously donated 40 pairs of slippers, and with a matching donation from Waiākea, plus an extra scoop of aloha, 100 pairs of slippers were donated to the school.
When it comes to the Waiākea Kōkua Initiative, the experience is always uplifting as we continue to work together to strengthen our community while building relationships, strengthening friendships, and creating memorable moments.
The Kōkua Initiative at Waiākea held a book drive in support of students at Hilo Union Elementary School and the Big Island community rallied to donate 735 books. Waiākea also matched the donation of books to bring the total to 1470!
