Program Description:

Project Dana is a Faith In Action program that provides a variety of services to the frail elderly and disabled to ensure their wellbeing, independence, and dignity in an environment of their choice.

Support comes from a corps of trained volunteers guided by the principle of “Dana,” which combines selfless giving and compassion without desire for recognition or reward.

Dāna is a Sanskrit and Pali term meaning “generosity” or “giving”. In Buddhism, it also refers to the practice of cultivating generosity. Ultimately, the practice culminates in one of the Perfections: the Perfection of Giving.

This can be characterized by unattached and unconditional generosity, giving and letting go. Our mission is to provide compassionate support and services to Hawaii's Kupuna and their caregivers.
