Where We Are

We are on the north shore of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, as close to paradise on earth as you can be.

Who We Serve

Young people who may not have the opportunity to get out to the country, to interact with farm animals and nature, and to experience life in a way that is different from their home town. If you feel that your group or organization would benefit from visiting Makanali, please contact us.

Would You Like to Help?

Makanalani depends on donations to provide this facility to the children.
Any donation, large or small, is gratefully appreciated.

Makanalani’s mission is to help all children and youth who may not otherwise have the opportunity to have a free holiday in a tropical environment and to experience God’s love and the love of others. Through this life-changing experience they see that there can be much more to their lives than the circumstances in which they may now be living. They go home with the seeds of their future growth firmly implanted, creating the hope for and means to a better future.

Every child is precious is our eyes and in God’s eyes. Often the potential in a child can be awakened by a few life-changing experiences—we want a visit to Makanalani to be one of those for as many youth as possible. We provide the experience of a world that is far from the strife and confusion of many children’s everyday existence. A world where they can experience peace, fellowship and inspiration.
For as long as we are able, and with the Lord’s blessing, we will make this haven available to children in need. We are here to help, to support and, humbly, to inspire. Many years of our lives have been dedicated to making this dream a reality, and it is only the beginning.
