Jordan's work will help support PeacePlayers International - Middle East, helping hundreds of children in Israel and the West Bank to experience positive cross-communal interaction.
Jordan Dosch is a student at Brigham Young University Hawaii, where PPI has long had a very passionate base of supporters, who is now supporting PeacePlayers International in two very different ways.
Majoring in Conflict Management and English, Jordan arrived in Israel for a term abroad this Spring, where he quickly volunteered his time to support PPI. Jordan’s goal is to one day work in conflict management himself, and he views this experience as a major stepping stone to that life. He calls it “truly a once in a lifetime experience,” and has embraced it with whole-hearted enthusiasm.
But Jordan’s not only giving his time on the ground in the Middle East. He’s also taken it upon himself to raise funds for PPI’s work in Israel and the West Bank, helping to support the very programs with which he’s volunteering. With a personal appeal to several of those close to him, Jordan raised $300 for PPI in the Middle East, a wonderful contribution to our cause. We are extremely grateful for Jordan’s service and commitment to PPI.
We’ll bring you video here on From the Field as often as we can, but if you want to explore more PeacePlayers International multi-media, be sure to visit us on YouTube at www.youtube.com/peaceplayersintl.
Our YouTube page acts like an unofficial history of PeacePlayers International, featuring videos from every stage in the program’s development, like this short piece from 2005, our first PSA:
Recently, we’ve tried to be much more active in capturing the progress made by PPI in the field for our international audience. We don’t build schools, or wells, but communities, something less tangible but no less necessary. So we hope you’ll take some time to view these communities in action, let us know what you think, and get involved.
P.S. It’s the last week to help PPI win $25,000 or more! All it takes is a few minutes of your time. Vote for PPI with Chase Community Giving on Facebook here:
