Girl Scouts of Hawaii (GSH) has received a $92,500 grant from NOAA Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) grant for its Wonders of Water STEAM leadership program. Beginning in early November, this program will help girls understand how water, the world’s most precious resource, and the environment impact each other.
The goals of Wonders of Water (WOW) is for young girls to draw on this knowledge and experience and lead others to adopt responsible stewardship practices resulting in healthier watersheds and a more abundant supply of clean water in Hawai‘i.
“We are very excited to receive funding support from such a prestigious organization as NOAA,” said Reyna Kaneko, interim chief executive officer for Girl Scouts of Hawaii. “This pilot program, at He‘eia Elementary School, in partnership with the Department of Education’s Castle Complex, is a first step to providing a Girl Scout Leadership Experience to more girls statewide.”
