Education

Education | All Project Areas

Should where you are born determine your opportunity for a life of basic dignity? Providing education for a child can determine a completely new path for his or her life – and with your help, we can reverse the trends of injustice and poverty that lead to a lack of education in Africa. We support education projects in several countries, addressing each country’s needs individually.

Amongst others, we’ve built schools in Ethiopia and Kenya. Because a lack of education often leads to unemployment, we’ve also helped fund job-training centers in South Africa and the Kibera slums of Kenya. In Africa, employment can equal the ability to feed your children or not. Together, we help provide a holistic approach to vocational training through small business loans and job skills instruction.

Our Current Work

New Dawn Educational Centre

New Dawn Educational Centre

Made from modified, recycled shipping containers and featuring solar energy that powers all things electric, New Dawn Education Centre is the pride of the slum communities of Huruma and Githogoro, in the suburbs of Nairobi, Kenya. Until 2004, when New Dawn opened it’s doors, most young people would not have had an opportunity for a high school education. Mocha Club Members have partnered with the school to provide study labs, books, scholarship support, salary assistance and many other resources.

The school is a “green energy” school with solar energy, a pumping station that brings water from the river that is purified and made potable. There is a rain catchment system that provides water for drip irrigation for the vegetable gardens and greenhouse. There is also a bio-digester that turns cow dung into methane gas to heat the porridge and tea for breakfast. All of these are cost saving for the school making them independent from the cities electric and water grids.

Mocha Club partners with New Dawn Educational Centre to provide a top-notch education to the young people of the area as well as to invest in the medical and clean water needs of the community through a partnering clinic and water solution.

Last year, I had the amazing opportunity to spend four months in Uganda. I met dozens of children who were denied the opportunity of an education because of finances. Just because I can't send every child to school, doesn't mean I shouldn't help the few that I can. The Mocha Club gives me a chance to make a difference. I love the heart behind the organization and the concept really enables people to create change when they otherwise thought they couldn't.

I joined Mocha Club in 2008 as a college student looking for a way to make significant impact in Africa while living on a small budget. Interning at Mocha Club in 2009 allowed me an intimate look at the heart behind the organization and I have been inspired to help in any way I can ever since.
