Student Video Call

Our high school students are home for a 7-week break. This offers sponsors an opportunity to catch up with the high schooler students after a long academic year. The sponsor-student call is scheduled for Saturday, April 23rd from 7am to 12pm CST via Zoom. Reach out to us at to schedule your time slot.

For logistical purposes, we will need to finalize our call schedules in advance. So, we will close the signing up on 17th April. Please sign up ahead of time so as not to miss out. Our students are looking forward to catching up with you; they have so much to share!

Note, that unfortunately, this is likely the only call with high school students this year due to the compressed calendar schedule.

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.

Sponsor Experience

Cassie and Elijah
When we signed up to sponsor our students, we hoped it would help improve their lives. What we didn’t expect was how it would change ours. Our students have become our teachers about life, gratitude, optimism, and finding joy in each moment. Supporting an education is a direct investment into these students and their future. Through a sponsorship with Moja Tu, you have the opportunity to create a meaningful relationship with a student that will change not only their life, but yours as well.
Sincerity and kindness with a strength of purpose is what comes to mind when I think of the people at Moja Tu. My life has been enriched greatly by the students I sponsor, and I am ever so grateful for this gift. I am thrilled to be associated with this wonderful organization!
Anyone can be a sponsor. The return on the investment of a child's education will live on for generations and that’s powerful. The fulfillment goes beyond your wildest expectations and gets down into the core of humanity. The love these children have will remind you that it’s not about how much money you gave but it’s about the everlasting power you are giving to someone by giving them an education. Without it, future nurses, future tour guides and more would have been reduced to beggars.
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.
