Our mission is to provide education to children in need, as well as support their personal, academic and career growth by building close relationships with all of our students.
Moja Tu was founded in January 2013 by Kathy and Christine. During a philanthropic trip to Kenya, they learned of a growing need to help children access a quality education. Kathy and Christine returned to America determined to help these students reach their academic, career, and personal goals.
We began by sponsoring 10 students and grew exponentially over the years to now sponsor almost 200 Kenyan students. We hope to ensure that these children receive not only the financial support needed to finish their educations, but also the emotional support from their sponsors to help them grow and be successful in their lives.
Through a sponsorship with Moja Tu, students in Kenya are partnered with sponsors in the United States. Sponsors make a donation that is entirely allocated to their student and covers tuition fees, school supplies, personal effects, housing, and more. Students also have access to medical care and mental health services. We encourage sponsors and students to develop a close relationship and provide many opportunities for connection, including facilitating letter exchanges between sponsors and students, hosting Skype calls every term break for students and sponsors to catch up, and even visiting students in Kenya once a year.
Moja Tu means "Just One" in Swahili. We believe that if we can help just one child earn an education, they will have the knowledge and skills they need to help change the future for their entire community. One Child. One Education. One Future.
