The #KenyaMocha team may not have made it over to Africa as planned this week, but we are excited to announce that they have decided to swing by the Mocha Club offices in Nashville!
Join Annie, Jessi, Lindsay, Marisa, and Lizzie as they get together to talk and share stories about New Dawn!
(see below about how you can get sweet swag from the trip members, too!)
TOMORROW, Thursday, May 22nd, we will be streaming a LIVE #KenyaMocha chat from the Mocha Club headquarters starting at 7pm central time along with a corresponding twitter chat. And we want you to be a part of it!
Stay tuned & follow the #kenyamocha hashtag for the link to the stream tomorrow.
Do you live in Nashville? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to have you stop by and be part of the action.
About New Dawn Academy:
A school can only grow and flourish when there is a dedicated and supportive staff on hand. The amazing teachers are what make New Dawn the beacon of hope that it is to the local community. Without these teachers, the school simply can not operate. Currently, while much of the school is making ground-breaking advancements, funds for the incredible staff is it’s greatest need. We want to support these teachers and continue the big impact they have on the students of New Dawn. If just 31 of us gave $18 a month, we could provide 1 teacher with the necessary funds they need to continue to teaching for one year.
In Kenya, a teacher’s average salary is $6500; compare this to an average salary of a teacher in the States at $55,000. For our New Dawn teachers, it’s more than the salary; it’s the lives that they are impacting everyday through education.
- Join us in supporting a teacher at $18 a month and as a thank you, we will receive a free autographed copy of “Let’s All Be Brave” by Annie Downs AND “Speak” by Nish Weiseth when they are released in the fall and a free print designed in-house by Jessi + Lindsay.
- Join us in supporting a teacher at $9 a month and as a thank you, we will send you a free print designed in-house by Jessi + Lindsay.
Throughout the twitter chat, we will be giving away items from our bloggers! Ask a question to #kenyamocha and be entered in the drawing for these prizes. We will announce the winners periodically during the live stream.
