Our impact
Collectively, we have made great progress and growth, but what excites us the most is the enormous potential we have to do even more.

Mahalo nui loa donors of the David & Julia Desha Scholarship. I wanted to reach out and mahalo you for your generous award. Your financial kindness will greatly help me focus more on my studies and less on working to earn money to pay for school. The pandemic had been hard financially for my family and there was a point in which I thought college might be out of reach. Your assistance has helped me make my college dreams a reality and without your support this journey would be difficult to achieve.I graduated in May 2021 from Kamehameha Schools. I have dreamed of being a writer since I was in elementary school. Your award gives me a vote of confidence that I will be able to make my dreams a reality. Me ka mahalo nui!
