Giving Back For Future Generations
I’ve always loved ecotourism, so when the term “voluntourism” started to make itself known – I was interested. Some of us love to give back to the people, land or Mother Nature herself when we travel and Hawaii has plenty of opportunities for anyone interested in discovering Hawaii in a more fundamental way.
Hookuaaina is a unique program that aims to empower Hawaii’s youth through the cultivation of taro and teach them cultural Hawaiian values. Fun way to get muddy in Oahu!
Hawaiian Islands Land Trust
HILT is a great program to look into if you’re not on Oahu. Their focus is on restoring and maintaining one of Hawaii’s most important resources: the land. Join them as they perpetuate Hawaii so that our children’s children may still call this place paradise.
This program is popular in Hawaii and has an awesome following. I highly recommend looking into this group since you’ll probably be able to participate in an activity near you.
I actually learned of 808 Cleanups from Dan at The Real Hawaii, which is just another reason why he will be so awesome for your personal and custom tour of Oahu!
