About Us

One Child

One Education

One Future



During a philanthropic trip to Kenya in 2013 we learned that in Kenya, like other developing countries, secondary education is not freely available to all.   As a result many disadvantaged children don’t have the opportunity to complete their schooling because they simply don’t have the money to pay for it.   After learning this and seeing first hand the thirst for education in the children we worked with on the trip, we decided we had to do something to help…and Moja Tu was born.  At Moja Tu, which means “Just One” in Swahili, we believe that without access to education these children miss out on the foundation they need to better provide for their families and move out of poverty. Education is the cornerstone for their future, but they also need our support and encouragement to succeed. That is why our mission is to not only provide these children with access to education but to also support them through a one-on-one relationship with their sponsor. We foster this relationship through not only letters but also with quarterly video conferences where you can talk to the child whose life your changing. Moja Tu feels this mentorship component of the sponsorship offers students a higher opportunity to succeed in their studies and realize their dreams.

Uniform Campaign

Our goal is to raise enough money to provide 80 students with uniforms, outfitting 1 student head to toe is $50. Every year, we travel to Kenya and present students in Children's Homes with new uniforms. We want to ensure that aside from getting an education, they have a new uniform and shoes to help them in their journey. Many of these kids have a hand me down uniform, sweater with holes in it, shoes that no longer fit or maybe even no shoes at all. These students deserve to feel proud and confident in themselves as they enter into a classroom. Help make these students feel worthy of the education that they are receiving.

Nature Day Campaign

JB Journeys is partnering with Moja Tu to make sure that nature education is a component of their development. Did you know that many Kenyan children, especially the poor, have never seen wildlife or parks that their country is famous for?



  • Can you remember the catalyst that that led you to appreciate and value the natural world? There was likely an event that produced in you a feeling of joy and excitement. That feeling led to a desire to learn and experience more of nature and with each exposure you gradually came to understand that we are all interconnected. Now as an adult, in minute or monumental ways, you contribute to our planets sustainability. All thanks to your initial, positive experience with nature.

  • Pay it forward by sponsoring a child to attend a Nature Day outing. At our request, wildlife guide James Wanyoike and his company, BushArt Safaris, have designed a fun filled, educational field trip for both upper level and primary students. The students will visit the Giraffe Center/ African Fund for Endangered Wildlife, David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and have a picnic lunch.

  • Sponsor a child to attend Nature Day for $65 or sponsor a group of 10 students for $650. These funds will cover the transportation, their teacher escorts, entrance fees and lunch. Our goal is to raise enough money to take 100 students, and shake their world!!

Volunteer

Even a small amount of time volunteered to Moja Tu can make a lasting impression on a child, and there are so many ways you can participate. Through our volunteer program you can:

  1. Write letters to the children to offer encouragement as they continue their studies
  2. Participate in our quarterly video conferences.
  3. Help out at an event
