Molokai Child Abuse Prevention Pathways (MCAPP) stops sexual violence through education, community organizing, leadership development, and consciousness raising that directly serves 15% of our island community each year.
MCAPP empowers children, teens, sexual abuse survivors, and other community leaders to respect and love themselves and others, and to become advocates. MCAPP also works to build healthy interpersonal and romantic relationships, and prevent teen suicide.
Molokai-born tattoo artist Ku’u Kaho’ohanohano designed MCAPP’s logo graphic. The ti leaf symbolizes safety and protection and is a visible part of daily life. The plant stands upon an ohe kapala (kapa stamp) depicting fresh flowing water, symbolic of life's journey, healing, and the whole truth, as well as shark’s teeth, symbolic of shelter, guidance, power, and courage. Molokai is associated with the goddess Hina, who is known for her beautiful kapa.
MCAPP is led by Molokai's strengths: aloha, resourcefulness, and connections to land, place, family, and spirituality.
