ABOUT MALAMA KAUA'I

From Malama Kauai

Founded in 2006, Malama Kaua’i is a community-based, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that focuses on advocating, educating, and driving action towards a sustainable Kaua’i. In the last few years we have honed our focus on increasing local food consumption and production, as well as building community capacity and growing interest in sustainable tourism.

Right now their mission is the disaster relief efforts in response to the catastrophic flooding on the island.

OUR VALUES:
We consider the interrelatedness of all issues and the need for a holistic approach, with a focus on three primary areas:

‘Aina.  We are rooted in the core value of aloha ‘aina (love and connection to the land). We create solutions that foster sustainability and work in harmony with nature while producing abundant, healthy and local food.

Community.  We care for our children, our economy, our society and our island’s future. We envision a Kaua’i where people enjoy a high quality of life and the sense of community is strong.

Culture.  We are built on healthy relationships with each other and our kinship with the land. We respect and perpetuate the local culture and indigenous wisdom of our ancestors.
