About Us

MCAPP logo dark green_edited.png

Established in 2011, Molokai Child Abuse Prevention Pathways (MCAPP) stops sexual violence by providing workshops for keiki from pre-school through 12th grade, training for school faculty and community leaders, and partnering with the community to raise awareness.  

MCAPP empowers youth to create healthy boundaries, seek help and support, and perpetuate a culture of safety and respect for themselves and others. MCAPP facilitates conversations with adults and youth leaders that increase safety and support for the well-being of our keiki and their 'ohana.

The story of our logo

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.
