Ho ‘ ōla Nā Pua’s PEARL GALA, themed Hukilau



Saturday, September 29, 2018 5:00 pm



The Four Seasons Resort at Ko Olina



Every day in Hawai‘i, our keiki are being sexually exploited for money, right here in our islands.  Children are often preyed upon online and through social media, as well as in popular locations such as schools, malls, movie theaters and bus stops. A problem of this scope and scale can only be tackled by an aware, engaged and proactive community committed to stopping it and supporting the comprehensive services that are needed for those who have been victimized. HNP is committed to the renewal of underage sex trafficked girls through health, education, advocacy and reintegration.
