There are 1 billion people worldwide who do not have access to clean drinking water. Mocha Club’s clean water solutions are freeing individuals from this devastating situation by providing water that is safe and free of disease. We work to create holistic and sustainable water solutions by training and equipping community members to keep up with basic well maintenance to ensure clean water flows for years to come.

Our Current Work
Huruma Water System
In 2009, Mocha Club helped to fund the building of the New Dawn School in the Huruma slum of Nairobi, Kenya. Alongside the school, we helped provide a solution to help bring clean water by installing a purification system and piping water from a nearby river. Half of the world’s schools do not have access to clean water or adequate sanitation. By partnering with the local community, Mocha Club was able to help bring safe water to the school, allowing the children to focus on their education. While the journey to clean water was met with some unexpected problems and repairs, the Mocha Club, along with help from the Huruma community was able to see the project to completion. The village of Huruma and the New Dawn Education Centre now have several community holding tanks, a purification system, and a rain catchment system that gives significant water for irrigation of the school’s sustainable food supply.
In slums like Huruma, clean water transforms the community. When visiting the site in the summer of 2011, Mocha Club Member, Emily Crane said, “before the school and clean water solutions were built, Huruma was described by the locals as “a pit: no one comes out of it and there is no hope for a better life.” Now, with Mocha Club partnering to help provide both education and water solutions for the community, there is a new sense of hope and rejuvenation to one of the largest slums in Kenya.”

Stephanie in TennesseeAfrica has always held a special place in my heart, especially the children there. They constantly remind me how blessed I am to have a roof over my head and food in my stomach. My grandfather and my brother have both been to Africa and came home with heartfelt stories. I love how MochaClub takes something as simple as $9 a month and helps so many people! This is why I have joined MochaClub and continue to stay as well as volunteer my time when I can. I love the people at MochaClub, their heart, and their willingness to help those around the world. Going to Africa is on my bucket list and I look forward to that day, but until then I will continue to show my support through Mocha Club.”
Ashley in WisconsinI was blessed with the opportunity to be part of the team that traveled to Ethiopia to work with the Women At Risk program and witness first hand all that MC is doing across the globe, but also, how it’s working here; how it’s working through me. This world belongs to us. We are the ones that determine what our cities and towns revolve around, what our society deems important. Those who took a chance and made the move to make the difference, they have become my new-found inspiration and the “something” I want to be part of. While I still may be only one, I too can inspire others as The Mocha Club has allowed me the opportunity to be inspired and has opened my eyes.”
