Jungle to Jungle Hosts Haiku Event

maui real estateBy Mark Harbison

There's always something interesting going on in various parts of the Maui community. What's amazing is the incredibly high volume of non-profit organizations that are active here, working on their efforts to make not only Maui, but the world a better place to live. A huge proportion of events on the island are held by such organizations, and another is taking place on Saturday, July 31st.

Jungle to Jungle is hosting a fundraiser/education project in Haiku. There will be pupus from Café Prana Nui, music by Cudra Clover, and information presented on the earth's most incredible jungles. This is definitely a kid-friendly event and should be an interesting time for the whole family.

Jungle to Jungle is an interactive science and technology program that seeks to foster a deeper understanding of international exploration and biology via the marvelous technological tools at our disposal in this progressive age. In fact, this program is intended for participation as a partial-semester addition to a student's regular curriculum.

This organization was founded by two intrepid young women who will share their exciting stories and discoveries at the event. These women are Amanda Wilson and Jill Pridemore. Amanda graduated from the University of Southern California with a BA in Childhood and ADHD. She's been mentoring and tutoring kids for a long time and currently works for Maui's Department of Education. Jill attended the University of Texas at Austin and she was involved in art therapy and mentoring for neglected and abused youth in both Texas and Minnesota. For a time, she worked for a web development company in Minnesota, but now she works as an art studio manager on Maui.

Amanda is in charge of the curriculum and Jill is the tech coordinator for the Jungle to Jungle program. Both women have brought their unique skills and abilities to bat for another passion they share. That passion is the natural world, with a particular fondness for the tropical environments where jungles are found. Last year, the dynamic duo went on an expedition in Brazil and this year, their next destination is Borneo.

For more information on the event, call Amanda at 808-250-8471. If you want to learn more about the program, visit the Jungle to Jungle website.
