I’ll never forget the first time I heard some of the stories of the women Mocha Club reaches out to through their Women At Risk program in Nazaret, Ethiopia. I clicked on their “Women at Risk” video, and I listened, and I watched, and I wept. Many of them are swept up into a vicious cycle of prostitution and poverty at an extremely young age. I didn’t know. You cannot hear the stories of these women without being moved and without wanting to do something to help. Please take a second out of your day, and give these women the dignity of listening. As you listen, know that there’s something you can do to help. By joining Mocha Club for the cost of two expensive coffee drinks a month ($9), you can help provide the counseling, community, and job training that these women so desperately need. Please consider joining me and the Mocha Club to help give these women a chance to find dignity in their work, healing from their past, and hope for their future.

Also, be sure to do good and look good at the same time by checking out fashionABLE, Mocha Club’s sustainable business where many of these women at risk in Ethiopia who would otherwise be caught up in prostitution, are trained to make and sell beautiful scarves.

I remember the first time I heard about Mocha Club and its mission, & it was something I thought was very doable & could make a difference. Donating the cost of 2 mochas… a month, how could I not? It was affordable, especially on my budget, and I’ve always had a heart for missions / volunteering. This was a way I could contribute and MC made it possible. I’ve made it a point to continue to donate for the last 4 years because it is easy to get caught up in life and worry about only yourself, but there are others out there who have far less and who am I to be so selfish?

For the longest time, I’ve been trying to figure out just why I need Africa.  It seems like it should be so very simple.  I’ve been a Mocha Club member for years.  I interned and even went on a trip.  Then it finally hit me.  I spend almost 2 weeks seeing things that I would try to comprehend at home in my comfortable little life, but I could never really understand until I was face to face with them. I need Africa because Africa showed me a bigger reality than the one I thought I was living in.  I need Africa because Africa taught me how to dream big. Africa showed me that I too have a place in changing the world around me; it’s now up to me if I want to take it.
