Give your Christmas shopping a whole new meaning. African Leadership’s community-giving arm, Mocha Club, has a couple of opportunities to give back this holiday season while you check names off your gift list. Shopping Mocha Club’s online store is the first way. With new products just launched for the Christmas season, you’ll find great gifts for those with a heart for Africa on your list. Scarves handmade in Ethiopia by women in our Women at Risk program, coffee and coffee mugs, decorative prints made exclusively for Mocha Club, t-shirts, totes, and more are available and new deals will be offered each day this week. Best of all, these are gifts that give twice as the proceeds benefit African Leadership’s Community Investment projects. Start shopping now at!

Second, Mocha Club teamed up with an organization called Pure Charity for the month of December to raise money for a very special campaign. African Leadership’s Country Director in Rwanda, Mezack Nkundabantu, has a unique graduating class this year – it is a class of 30 inmates in a Rwandan prison. To mark their graduation, Pastor Mezack would like to give each graduate a personal study Bible to encourage them as they continue their walk with God both inside and outside prison walls. Pure Charity allows you to make regular donations, but also allows for a percentage of your regular online purchases to be designated to this project. Learn how to get started here. You do your shopping, and Rwandan inmates get Bibles – it’s as simple as that!
