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.

I joined Mocha Club is 2008 when I became aware of the desparate needs of our brothers and sisters in Africa. My monthly contribution is a reminder that not everyone has the luxuries that I am accustomed to. Each month, I see the impact that skipping a few coffee runs makes on children in need and am delighted to be a small part of Mocha Club's effort.

I originally joined Mocha Club to help create change in a world far less fortunate than mine. Through my time volunteering and interning, I learned not only about how much change Mocha Club was creating in Africa, but also how much I could learn from the Africans whose lives Mocha Club was affecting. I remember seeing the "I Need Africa" video for the first time and nearly being moved to tears from the truth of that film. Overall, the community of people involved in Mocha Club are not only intelligent, creative, passionate, and general rockstars, they also are welcoming and made me feel like part of a family working to better not only the lives of others, but also, our own lives.
