T minus one month and we will be heading out on the Mocha Club Journey 2018! And we want you to meet the team!
I have now lived in Nashville almost 11 years (crazy!) after growing up outside of Atlanta and attending Auburn University! I have always had a big heart and passion for helping others, which drove me to start being involved in mission trips and non-profits here in Nashville. When I’m not playing with my niece and nephews and hanging with my family, you can find me on my porch with a good book, having a glass of wine with dear friends, or eating my way through Nashville’s amazing restaurants. Having been involved with Mocha Club through Ellie’s Run, I am beyond excited to go on this adventure with Mocha Club and these ladies. I feel extremely blessed to be able to learn from the incredible people of Kenya and play a small role in supporting Mocha Club’s mission!
The Mocha Club Journey 2018 team is headed to Kenya! We will spend time with our partners at New Dawn Educational Centre in Nairobi, Kenya and participate in their second annual Run For Hope 5K! All proceeds from the race help support operations and send kids to school at New Dawn. We will also be visiting another Mocha Club partner, Action Ministry and their founder, Peter Ochiel who serves a leprosy community in Ukunda. Our trips provide an opportunity for Mocha Club members and their friends to visit Africa and witness firsthand how giving to Mocha Club & supporting local leaders creates thriving communities, while having a chance to serve the African people.
