Since its inception in 2001, Hawaii 3R’s has helped to refresh nearly every public school across the state. We are a nonprofit committed to helping to Repairing, Remodeling and Restoring our schools, hence Hawaii 3R’s.
We work in partnership with the Hawaii State Department of Education (HiDOE) to identify schools in need of some upkeep that are on the HiDOE’s backlog list of school projects. And most of our funding comes from private donations from individuals and organizations that want to help improve our public schools.
We’ve completed nearly 500 projects at a savings of $40 million to the state.
In 2019, Hawaii 3R’s and Pacific Resource Partnership entered a volunteer partnership to ensure Hawaii’s public schools’ infrastructure continue to get the attention they need.
