KVIBE Meet Randell

Aloha neighbors, friends, staff and partners of Kōkua Kalihi Valley (KKV),

We would like to express our deepest gratitude for the support KKV has received throughout its history and for the enthusiastic response – in all of its forms – to our most recent appeal.

We believe that stories are the fabric of our community and the way in which awareness develops into connection. As we step into our 46th year of service to Kalihi Valley, we hope to foster greater connection by bringing the stories of our programs and participants to those who live, work, and care in this community.

The first of these is a highlight of one of the longest standing participants in our Kalihi Valley Instructional Bike Exchange (KVIBE) Program. Randel is a leaderin every sense of the word. Randel is part of a cohort of interns working to “strengthen connections for all people of Kalihi towards mental health, social justice, and well-being”. Through his work, Randel has become a mentor to those following him through the program. Take a look at the video below to hear from this young community leader first-hand.
