Key to Kāne is a fatherhood messaging service that helps fathers become more involved in their children’s lives. Kāne was the father of living creatures in the Hawaiian mythology and represented the god of procreation, being worshipped as an ancestor of chiefs and commoners. Key to Kāne delivers weekly text push-messages. Messages are tailored by child’s age. It includes information about normative child development, ideas for fathers on ways to become engaged with their children, and encouragement of men in their role as nā mākuakāne (fathers).
Key to Kāne was developed by a team of academics and practitioners including:
