The Noʻeau
Learning Box

The Noʻeau Learning Box Delivery program was launched in mid-March in response to COVID and to address the needs of our families who are sheltering in place. Boxes are filled with educational handcrafted Hawaiian games and activities and then loaned to families. These boxes are now available to teachers and community organizations.

What’s new?

  • We deliver to the entire island of O‘ahu, not just 96707 and 96706.
  • A bonus hands-on activity will be included in each box.
  • A one time $10 delivery/pick up fee will be assessed to cover transportation costs.
  • Extended time. You will have 2 weeks with your box, rather than 5 days.

The Ulu A‘e Learning Center wants to share its program resources with you.

Click on the link below to schedule delivery of your first No‘eau Box. It’s a crate of activities and resources on loan to you for two weeks. We’ll deliver the box to you and in a few days we’ll pick it up right from your front door. There is no charge for this service thanks to our generous sponsors: Office of Hawaiian Affairs and Kamehameha Schools.

We do ask that you take care of these resources while they are on loan to you – and that you return all items upon your scheduled pick up date.
