A program of the Mālama ‘Āina Foundation, in collaboration with Partners in Development Foundation, and the University of Hawaii College of Education

A natural extension of the Mālama I Ka ‘Āina program is Pīkoi Ke Kaula Kualena (Focus on the Essential Core: A Project to Develop Culturally Relevant, Standards-based Science Curricula For Teachers of Hawaiian and Part-Hawaiian Students). This program incorporates feedback from the Mālama program and focuses on two goals: Curriculum Development for teachers of K-12 Hawaiian and Part-Hawaiian students; and Development of School-Based Culture-Science Learning Centers on each major island (6 total) to support the unique cultural and educational needs of Native Hawaiian students, including those in the Gifted and Talented program.
