Hawai‘i's Diversity and Its Challenges

Ethnic diversity makes Hawai‘i unique compared to the rest of the United States. While this diversity enriches our state, it does present challenges to the various multi-ethnic communities, including providing language-accessible communication to all.


Providing Services In Hawai‘i for Over 30 Years

Ethnic Education Hawai‘i (EEH) has been a part of Hawai’i’s community for over 30 years. Our goal is to ensure those who lack proficiency with the English language have access to information in their own languages and to support the successful participation and integration of immigrants and others with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) into our multi-ethnic community.

11.0% of Hawai‘i's Population has Limited English Proficiency (LEP)

In 2022, 11.0% of Hawaiʻi’s population 5 years or older spoke English less than “very well.” This shows that there are challenges in being able to communicate with 1 in every 10 people in our state in English.

Non-English Public Broadcasting & Communications

With Ethnic Education Hawai‘i, we want to make public communication and broadcasting accessible to a significant part of the population who are not proficient in English. We aim to provide resources in the different languages that spoken and used across the state.
