Mālama ‘Āina Foundation Programs

Thank you for your interest in our program and our curriculum. We are an organization known as the Mālama ‘Āina Foundation, which is a sister organization to a foundation you may have heard of, Partners In Development (PID). PID is an IRS Section 501 (c)(3) non-profit public foundation that has successfully implemented a number of programs to assist native Hawaiian residents and their communities, such as Tutu and Me, Kōkua ‘Ohana, Baibala Hemolele, and Mālama I Ka ‘Āina. The Mālama ‘Āina Foundation and PID are chaired by Mr. Jan E. Hanohano Dill, a graduate of Kamehameha Schools and Tufts University.

The Mālama ‘Āina Foundation is a curriculum development organization supported by the Consortium for Hawai‘i Ecological Engineering Education (CHEEE), which received a grant from the United States Department of Education under the terms of the Native Hawaiian Education Program. The Consortium was developed in order to maximize the cooperation of programs whose focus is primarily the curriculum development for K-12 native Hawaiian students, in the areas of science, mathematics, and the Hawaiian culture.
