Rainbow for Japan Kids, a special project that focuses on supporting youth affected by the earthquake and tsunami that stuck northeastern Japan March 2011.

The program's purpose is to bring affected students to Hawaii for physical and psychological relief and recovery as well as form lasting friendships with children in Hawaii, group activities included visits to local schools, joint camp stays, and various activities around the islands. It is our hope to create a lasting rainbow bridge between Japan and Hawaii so these children will experience the spirit of Aloha and return home with new hope to create a better future for themselves and their communities. Since 2011, more than 120 children from northeastern Japan have participated this project.

This program was originally managed by Japan America Society of Hawaii (JASH). HISLEA has taken over the management of "Rainbow for Japan Kids (RFJK)" project in October 2013. Nadeshiko Club, a special division of HISLEA established to support the people of North East area of Japan affected by triple disaster of earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear accident of March 11, 2011 will do the actual program management in collaboration with Rainbow for Japan Kids Committee.



Nadeshiko Club's mission is to support the recovery effort in Tohoku Japan after the devastating earthquake on March 11, 2011. Recovery still has a long way to go, we continue to support the people who are trying their best to cope with this devastation.



HISLEA's Honolulu Chapter (HHC) was launched in the spring of 2012 to enrich and promote quality of life for senior citizens in Hawaii. HHC's mission is to strengthen fellowship amongst HISLEA members.
