Sonja Simmons


Sonja co-founded The Davis Moon Project after adopting Davis in 2008 and seeing firsthand the profound need among Ethiopian orphans for access to education. After a career in politics and banking, she now focuses exclusively on organizing and fundraising to benefit the children who rely on the DMP in Ethiopia. Sonja manages all the day-to-day operations of the DMP. She sees Davis in every child who is touched by the organization’s efforts and is eternally grateful for Haleigh and the never-failing group of volunteers that drive the DMP! Sonja and Davis live in Austin, TX.
