Ken­dama Event Brings Anti-vi­o­lence Mes­sage

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - West Oahu Islander -

In an ef­fort to pro­mote healthy re­la­tion­ships among youths, Bethel Chapel, Con­sor­tium for Health, Safety and Sup­port, Do­mes­tic Vi­o­lence Ac­tion Cen­ter, Made In Hope and other com­mu­nity part­ners will host a Ju­bilee Ken­dama Event/Sesh from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Satur­day at Au­gust Ahrens El­e­men­tary School.

The di­verse com­mu­nity part­ners aim to raise aware­ness about non­vi­o­lence and anti-bul­ly­ing in a way that chil­dren can en­joy.

“There will be times where short mes­sages and key phrases will be shared, and door prizes awarded to those who can an­swer (ques­tions),” ex­plained Alan Bar­tolome, one of the or­ga­niz­ers. “If we can teach kids early to treat oth­ers with re­spect and to live in har­mony, they turn into adults who do the same.”

The ju­bilee also will of­fer a com­pe­ti­tion at var­i­ous skill lev­els, along with prizes for the win­ners. In ad­di­tion to all of this ken­dama fun, com­mu­nity groups will be on site with in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to non­vi­o­lence.

Stu­dents who pr­ereg­is­ter via Face­book by to­day (May 28) will re­ceive a free ken­dama. Reg­is­tra­tion fee is $5.
