Amer Shurrab joining the “Saddle!”

Dear friends,

It is with great excitement that I welcome Amer Shurrab as the new Project Manager for donkeysaddle projects.

Amer’s first official day was Monday–and he has already jumped in with both feet, taking on the many-pronged responsibility of maximizing our projects’ impact and reach.

Amer brings to this work expertise from his recently completed MA degree in International Policy Studies and his MBA in International Management from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.  He brings his passion when he speaks publicly about the devastation his family experienced (two of his brothers were killed during the 2008/9 attack on Gaza, and four of his cousins during the 2014 Gaza war) and about the ongoing violations caused by occupation and siege.

Most importantly, Amer brings to donkeysaddle projects his deep commitment to human rights, to social justice, and to the principles of equality and human dignity. These principles are at the core of why we do our work, how we do our work, and the world that donkeysaddle projects is trying to build.

Will you join me in welcoming Amer to donkeysaddle projects by making an online $10 monthly donation in his honor, or, a one-time $25 donation? (Or, to send a check, click here.)

Your gift will enable Amer to start his work knowing that his vision of a world where everyone’s dignity and everyone’s rights are accorded equal importance is a vision that we all share.

Welcome aboard the saddle, Amer!  

With excitement,

Jen Marlowe
