About Mocha Club:
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. Mocha Club works in five main project areas: Clean Water, Education, Child Mothers + Women At Risk, Orphan Care + Vulnerable Children, and HIV/AIDS + Healthcare. Their vision is to provide a way for people who don’t have hundreds or thousands of dollars to make a difference in Africa. The 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. Mocha Club knows that today’s tech-savvy generation can have a huge impact by using the viral nature of the web. So they decided to equip Mocha Club members themselves to grow awareness and support for Africa by inviting friends.
