 BACKGROUND
Welcome to Watt Dhammaram of Hawaii !
Watt Dhammaram of Hawaii was built under the constitute of Cambodian-Buddhist Association of Hawaii (CABAH) which is a non-profitable, no partisan and religious organization.


BRIEF HISTORY
CABAH is a not-for-profitable and non-political affiliated association; and it bears no distinction of race, gender or religious faith. It was established on April 25, 2007 by Cambodian-Americans in Hawaii who are considered as having a higher labor force participation rate than other refugee groups and the general population (Tom 1988). The registration number is: 04/25/200720065. The Cambodian people mostly migrated here during the civil war 1970-1988. Their resettlement in Hawaii has significantly enriched multicultural society and contributed healthier community to Hawaii State as whole.

VALUE
"Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity." - Buddha

VISION
We, Cambodian-Americans, strongly believe in community-based development through social participation and volunteering because this can surely bear us fruits of happiness, prosperity, and sustainable development.

MISSION
We set up our goal to promote happiness, peace, harmony, prosperity, human rights, democracy and sustainability through the practice of Khmer culture and Buddhism among Cambodian-American community and local mainstream people.

OBJECTIVES

  1. To find a meeting space or build a Buddhist temple as a center and main place for gathering of community members.
  2. To provide religious and educational programs which include: retreats, mindfulness meditations, knowledge and teaching in Buddhist philosophy, chanting from Buddhist scriptures, a short religious address and a traditional blessing.
  3. To open Khmer language class, culture and tradition education in both theory and practice.
  4. To provide a venue and opportunity for people to gather for cultural and religious purposes and to the community at large for a variety of activities.

APPEAL
CABAH is lacking adequate funding to achieve its objectives especially to find a suitable space for community gathering. So your participation and contribution are invaluable for us.
