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.

Join Mocha Club members who are helping to provide opportunity and restore dignity to children and adults in Africa.

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 because I thought it was such a brilliant, simple concept. Back in 2006, I just kept hearing vaguely about bad stuff going on "in Africa." I remember thinking, "Okay...? But what can I do about it?" 2 mochas a month -- that's what I could do! I volunteer in whatever capacity I'm needed because I believe in MC and I've spent years seeing my small contribution resulting in real impact halfway around the world.

Clean Water is one of the basic needs to sustain life. I was stunned, no, embarrassed, to learn the death toll for lack of it. Where had I been? Oh right, lounging in my garden tub full of it! Time to towel off & get to work. Mocha Club is my feet on the ground in Africa. We make a great team!
