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.




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.
