Welcome to The Ethiopia Projects, an evolving suite of “small is beautiful” service projects in and around the ancient city of Harar, Ethiopia.


By sharing the untold and moving stories of those less fortunate and of the inspiring people who are serving them, we hope that “The Ethiopia Projects” do more than collect donations. Our efforts are also an adventure in community-building, empowerment, and global solidarity.

Importantly, we hope to overcome feelings of powerlessness in the face of seemingly intractable problems in the developing world… by making it fun and easy for caring and creative individuals to get involved directly… in a focused, personal way that is unencumbered by bureaucratic constraints.


Please follow the unfolding journey of “The Ethiopia Projects”… and consider getting involved by contributing your time, treasure, and talents.

No contribution is too small. In fact, small is beautiful.

    • Hello there, Zakaria! Thank you so much for your interest and offer to help. It gives me great joy to know that there are sensitive and generous people like you in the world. That said, we have received only $200 dollars in donations for the past year and have been unable to do much except to support very small efforts with our own money. Because of this, I do not plan to visit Ethiopia this summer, but I hope to do so this fall. I am in the USA at the moment, but my friend Mohammed Hassen is in Addis. May I ask where you live, how you discovered our site, and how you would like to help? In gratitude and peace, Frank Peter.

  1. I met Mohammed in Harar many years ago and was captured by his love, passion and devotion to his country and its people. He is a good man and I’m pleased to learn of the many initiatives he is undertaking together with his colleagues and friends! Good luck to you all.

  2. Just now stumbled upon this project through Frank’s blog and I am SO encouraged. 🙂 I visited Ethiopia last year and loved it. I’m excited to keep reading about the inspiring and life-changing things that you all are doing!

      • I just graduated from high school in Kenya, because my parents work for an NGO. We were in Ethiopia for their meetings in March of 2016. We stayed in Waliso and visited Lalibela. I do not have any plans to return but I’d love to.
