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.”
Mocha Club Members
Katie in AlabamaI joined Mocha Club at a Dave Barnes concert because after hearing about the organization, I learned that the value of $9/month in Africa was immeasurable compared to what $9/month would be used for here in the U.S. Through Mocha Club, I got a chance to go to South Africa and meet the people of the Cape Town townships. We helped build a preschool where children now have a place to go during the day and hear about Jesus. I got to see, first hand, the people that are positively impacted and forever changed through the money that people give to Mocha Club. I will always be a member of Mocha Club because my money each month provides support for that preschool that I helped to build. Kids are now able to have a place to go to eat, play, and experience the love of God all because I, along with the other members of Mocha Club, agreed to give up a Starbucks or two a month. I’m humbled and honored to have the opportunity to partner with Mocha Club to serve the wonderful people of Africa.”
Sam in TennesseeI loved how Mocha Club not only wanted to raise money to serve others, but encouraged their members to be a part of the process. It is really inspiring to see how the organization encourages members to choose to make sacrifices in their lives so that they can help others.”
