Legal Entity Type: Nonprofit/Charity
SDG(s): Good Health and Well Being, Partnerships to achieve the Goals, Quality Education, Sustainable Cities and Communities
Legal Issue(s):

Ma Ka Hana Ka ʻIke has worked with Hāna High & Elementary School for the past 23 years. They have a great relationship, and Ma Ka Hana Ka ʻIke is headquartered on the school’s campus. Now, for the first time, they are signing an MOU with the school and Department of Education to memorialize their relationship. The Ma Ka Hana Ka ʻIke team drafted the MOU based on another agreement that the school recently signed with another community partner. The school has the draft and is expected to return with comments this week. The Ma Ka Hana Ka ʻIke team is seeking assistance reviewing the comments/terms and finalizing the agreement. They are hoping to receive assistance as soon as possible (understanding that the Thanksgiving holiday might cause some delay).
