Magnificent Non-Profit: Ho‘ōla Nā Pua – Helping Girls who Truly Need it
The Hawaiian name Hoʻōla Nā Pua means “New Life for our Children.” This wonderful volunteer-based organization on Oahu helps to renew girls victimized by sex-trafficking. The group utilizes health, education, advocacy for the girls. They view these children as precious flowers needing hope, love, healing, and restoration. They trust that – like the sea star able to regenerate itself after losing an arm – these girls are powerfully capable of self-regeneration.
For girls who are rescued or escape from the abuse of sex trafficking, Hoʻōla Nā Pua provides a path to heal from their trauma, increase their self-worth, and gain the confidence and ability to successfully reintegrate into their families and the community.
The non-profit’s next goal is to build a facility called Pearl Haven on the North Shore to house their renewal activities.
You, too, can help these girls by taking movement classes! Really? Yes!
For all students who sign up for our Passport to Health Adventure/Benefit, Still & Moving Center will contribute a dollar for every class you attend this summer between the 4th of July and Labor Day. We can all be benefactors to help young girls set off on a new life path.
