The Mocha Club is an online community of people giving up the cost of 2 mochas a month – or $7 – to fund relief and development projects in Africa. We work in five main project areas: Clean Water, Education, Child Mothers + Women At Risk, Orphan Care + Vulnerable Children, and HIV/AIDS + Healthcare.
Our vision is to provide a way for people who don’t have hundreds or thousands of dollars to make a difference in Africa. Our community-based website allows members to start a team and invite friends to join them in giving up the cost of 2 mochas a month to support their chosen project. We know that today’s tech-savvy generation can have a huge impact by using the viral nature of the web. So we decided to equip The Mocha Club members themselves to grow awareness and support for Africa by inviting friends.
We’re aware of people’s general lack of trust that their money is being effective, and we address that by providing regular updates. Each month, we update our The Mocha Club members on how their $7 is helping the people of Africa through videos and blogs of the specific projects they are supporting.
