Hire Local:Thrive Local Initiative

ParaGenius builds upon their ethos of action-oriented charity to provide a Maui wildfire disaster-relief initiative through "Hire Local:Thrive Local." Joining forces with organically managed farm 'Oko'a Farms, the program provides a multi-pronged approach to simultaneously empower Maui wildfire survivors and cultivate future stewards of Maui's organic farming movement.

Initial design of the program offers eight wildfire survivors year-long contracts with full-time living wages and rent-free accommodation, fostering financial stability and equipping participants with invaluable agricultural skills. This symbiotic union empowers survivors to rebuild their lives while contributing to the long-term sustainability of local food systems.

Okoa Farms operates across 5 parcels of land and owns an upcountry storefront, sharing produce from their own operations along with the produce and value-added products from over 30 local vendors and farmers.
