The purpose of the Himonaꞌ program is to offer abstinence education and training for youth and their family members. The Himonaꞌ program’s goal is to help youth identify healthy relationships, develop skills to make good decisions and set goals for the future, while understanding and avoiding sexual transmitted diseases (STD).

The Himonaꞌ program provides accurate information regarding pregnancy, STDs, contraceptives and practical ways to avoid inappropriate sexual advances.

The Himonaꞌ program presents to schools and participates in community activities to teach students why abstinence is the most effective method of preventing pregnancy and STDs.
