Giving Back Program

Growing up in Hawaii, I always had that sense of community. One thing my parents instilled in me was the idea of giving back. When The Keiki Dept. first started in 2016, we wanted to support our community in any way we could, from donating to different auctions that supported members of our community to 20 different organizations that provide services to both keiki and ʻohana across the islands.

In 2023, The Keiki Dept. will continue to donate 1% of our sales from our online orders. As a company that focuses on all things keiki, we are focusing our efforts to support ʻAha Pūnana Leo. We feel that our mission aligns with theirs in our efforts to support both keiki and ʻohana:

To drive and inspire change to ensure a living Hawaiian language in Hawaiʻi and beyond, our organization is dedicated to the people we serve.

ʻAha Pūnana Leo spans across 13 different locations throughout the Hawaiian islands and is home to three unique programs: Kula Kamaliʻi & Hiʻipēpē (pre-school and infant toddler program), Aukukui (Professional Development & Niuolahiki Online Hawaiian Language Courses), and the Neʻepapa Outreach Program.
