Bye Bye, Brothel!
The month of May was history-in-the-making for Surfing The Nations as we took another big step towards Transformation Wahiawa! The much-anticipated demolition of an old brothel in the back of our property has finally come to pass. After years of being used as a house for illegal drug dealing and sex-trafficking, the plot of land has been flattened in order to rebuild a community center in its place. The “Outreach Training Center” (OTC), as it will be called, will include a food pantry, art & music rooms for our Ulu Pono Kids program as well as permanent offices for our staff.
As exciting as this is, we still need your help! As grants trickle in and needs continue to grow, we ask that you consider partnering with us as we continue to take steps towards making this block a better place for the youth of Wahiawa to grow up.
