Raise money for Molokai Young Life
Molokai, Hawaii’s fifth largest island, has a population of just 7,000 people, 80 percent of whom are on welfare. As the most impoverished island in Hawaii, no fast food restaurants exist, no traffic lights, no chain stores, and no major industries. The need is apparent; poverty is a way of life. With a high percentage of its population being of Native Hawaiian ancestry visitors may feel like they are in a foreign country. It is an island lost in time, but the Aloha spirit indeed flourishes.
The Young Life area here started club two years ago and is averaging 20-30 kids. With no money to bring on a staff person, Young Life club is run by volunteer leaders. They would love to receive more Young Life strategies, ideas, skits, mixers, games, talks, etc., from the mainland. But more than our input, they greatly need our encouragement in a place that seems so far away and forgotten.
Molokai Young Life is currently fundraising for their upcoming trip to Canada with the High School Students
