Our Story

The Story Behind Our Name and Logo

We are truly an international family, a blend of Filipino and German cultures with 100% American zeal. We love the Aloha spirit of the people and land of Hawaii. The name Klapperich International Training Associates, or KITA, reflects our commitment and celebration of the diversity found within our family and our community. The word “kita” in Tagalog (a main Filipino language) has different meanings but the one that represents our business is the reflexive pronoun that means “I to you”. (For more examples of how this word is used, please visit http://tagaloglang.com/kita/)

Our logo was created by our cousin, Paolo Gonzalez, and is the word KITA sideways. Its Asian appearance and clean lines are also meant to reflect our commitment to diversity and effective training solutions.
