The Davis Moon Project
The mission of the Davis Moon Project is to be the primary support of the Davis Moon Project School in the Kadara region of rural Arbegona, Ethiopia. The DMP School serves over 2,000 students grades pre-K to 8th grade and is a collaborative effort including school administration, local authorities, parents, church leaders, and government officials. We underwrite all infrastructure, student uniforms, desks, some teacher training and most learning materials. We also strive to support the large orphan community in Ethiopia by working with select urban and rural orphanages and empowering the large population of orphaned students at the DMP School. The DMP School is utilized as a community medical clinic during non-school hours.
Davis Moon was born in Awassa, Ethiopia before coming home in 2008. Davis has a large and truly wonderful Ethiopian family that includes his three brothers (Nebu, Biruk & Lewe) and two sisters (Selamwit & Sonja). Davis is well loved by ALL of his family on both continents and makes regular visits to Ethiopia to stay connected to his heritage and beautiful relatives. He is also an active volunteer in our literacy endeavors.
JOIN A MISSION
Our mission trips are a unique opportunity to work with the Davis Moon Project organization. Every even year we take a small group of volunteers to assist with projects in identified areas of need. Over the years our volunteers have hosted micro-finance workshops, painted murals in orphanages, helped build new classrooms, planted trees used for construction, visited orphanages, conducted physical exams, administered prescription medication, distributed shoes, organized libraries and delivered needed supplies.
