It’s a crazy comparison, right? That you could make your coffee at home a few times a month and that savings could make a real difference in Africa?
Since it’s sometimes hard to believe a little could mean a lot, we decided to take you through how the whole thing happens in 3 steps.
Step 1: This one is on you. You commit to give up a few mochas a month. Just $18 – maybe 4 or 5 mochas in a 30 day span. That’s only a few mornings each month you make your coffee at home rather than grab it on your way to work. Totally doable.
Step 2: This is the step you don’t see. It’s also the most important one.
Mocha Club works through education. Our local Country Directors identify local lay leaders in positions to spur change. Those leaders go through a 9-month course, co- created by our Country Directors and tailored to an African context, that teaches those in positions of influence to conduct social analyses, prioritize community needs, identify local assets and resources, develop a plan of action, budget and timeline that plan of action, and then enact the solution and measure its impact.
Step 3: This is the celebration you see in updates from us – the orphan care projects, the trauma-healing groups for children of war, the new water wells, the schools. These are the final products that come out of that course and are enacted by those local leaders. By supporting the education of that one local leader, you put kids in school, you restore hope to the victims of war, you provide clean water – the possibilities are endless!
