About

​When We Shine

When WE Shine Foundation was born out of  inspiration from an international, multi-media Arts4Change workshop that took place in Pune, India in 2016. The seed was planted, the recognition of a universal human desire to belong, and to work for something greater than ourselves. When one person allows the world to see the fullness of their heart and spirit, it gives permission to us all! We are here to show the world what’s possible When WE Shine!

    We are based in Maui in the Hawaiian Islands, the home of aloha. The concept of aloha is a model for mindful living. It has a greater meaning than hello and goodbye. Aloha teaches us how to treat ourselves, others, the land, the waters, and all existence, a reminder of the sacredness of life.
