Make a difference TOGETHER with immediate support through Mānowai

When Native Hawaiian artist Kukui Mahoney got the call to work on a new mural in support of the Pauahi Foundation, the creative painter jumped at the opportunity to bring attention to the new Mānowai Scholarship fund.

Mahoney and fellow artists from 808 Urban collaborated with the Pauahi Foundation to paint a large mural within “The Barn” at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako on ‘Āina Pauahi.

“Education redeems us; it can open doors and change lives,” Reinhardt says. “I chose to give to the Pauahi Foundation to perpetuate the legacy of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop in furthering the education of the Hawaiian people. I also felt it was my kuleana to honor my mother and sister — mana wāhine o Hawai‘i — with a scholarship on behalf of each. Being Hawaiian and guided by the Aloha Spirit, this is the legacy that I wanted to carry on.”
