Moja Tu

Our Mission

Moja Tu provides educational scholarships to children in need in developing countries. We believe that education is the most important tool in the fight against poverty. Education empowers students, giving them the knowledge and skills they need to build successful futures and help end the cycle of poverty in their communities.

We support students throughout all stages of schooling, from the primary to university level and beyond. In addition to providing financial support, we also encourage our sponsors to develop a close bond with their students. This emotional support from their sponsors helps our students thrive throughout their academic journey.

Franklin's Rainbow Fund

Franklin is a Moja Tu student who was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. Despite aggressive treatments including the amputation of his leg and 5 months of chemo, sadly the disease has spread and there are no further treatments options available. Treatment took a toll on Franklin’s body, but his spirit never wavered. While chemotherapy prevented him from enrolling in school, he provided math tutoring to several Moja Tu students throughout treatment, showing true dedication to their success and demonstrating once again what an exemplary person he is.

We are eternally grateful to Franklin for sharing his light with us and now ask you to join us in ensuring that his light never fades. Moja Tu has created a fund in Franklin’s honor that will be dedicated to being the rainbow in other children’s lives. Franklin’s Rainbow Fund will help manage and support Moja Tu students achieve their dreams of getting an education by providing funds for ancillary expenses including medical, vision, hearing, counseling, school materials, clothes, etc.

Help us Power Franklin’s Rainbow by showing your support by making a donation!


Join us at these events in the name of education!

Whosoever saves a single life saves the entire world." This quote from both the Talmud and the Quran sums up the philosophy of Moja Tu. I am privileged to participate in saving the life of a child, and perhaps his or her entire family, by funding that child’s education. On a micro level, Moja Tu provides meaning and purpose to my life, and hope and opportunity to a child’s life. On a macro level, Moja Tu helps create a cadre of educated Kenyan professionals to bolster the country’s workforce. I get to help a child, the child gets an education, and together, we build a better society. I can’t think of a better investment.
The founder and Moja Tu employees in Austin and Kenya are diligent and sincere in their work to fulfill Moja Tu’s mission. As a sponsor, I know that my contribution is invested directly in my student. She and I correspond through letters, pictures, and Skype calls, all facilitated by Moja Tu. When my daughter and I had the privilege of meeting my student in person, it was a wonderful time of celebrating her amazing strengths and for the three of us to share a very, very special bond of love and purpose. Moja Tu is a blessing to everyone it touches!
My husband and I have always believed that education is critical to improving the global community. When we heard about Moja Tu and the opportunities it provided to young people who were eager to further their education, we knew we wanted to be involved. We've been able to develop a relationship with the kids we sponsor, and it's been a privilege to witness them work for and achieve their goals.
