We believe all children deserve the opportunity to succeed. And the way to reach this goal is to create a dedicated funding stream that provides all children, under the age of five, with quality early learning programs and services.
Be My Voice! Hawai‘i is a collaborative, public-will building campaign, whose mission is to raise support around early childhood education, family strengthening and health services. We are businesses, non profits, families and community groups who believe that supporting our youngest keiki benefits the whole state by reducing spending on special needs, and increasing the number of children prepared for kindergarten and graduating from high school, ultimately leading to a skilled workforce and a stronger economy.
The campaign was launched at the October 2010 Governor’s Forum to raise awareness of the devastating affects cuts to family strengthening and early education programs have on Hawai‘i’s future. We continue to meet with and encourage legislators, business leaders, providers and families to speak up so that Hawai‘i’s children are a top priority in our state.
