Sara Benabdallah

Coordinator, GATHER

Sara joined Seeds of Peace as the GATHER Coordinator in the spring of 2019. Her career began in campaign and nonprofit strategy and has focused on US social and public policy, most recently income inequality and financial instability in US households.

She has a Masters Degree in Gender and Social Policy from the London School of Economics and has worked throughout her adult life both personally and professionally, to increase opportunities for woman and children in a variety of areas.

Today, Sara continues to dedicate her career to seeking impactful social change. Based in Jerusalem, she works with GATHER Fellows, Seeds of Peace Alumni, and GATHER:JLM.

She’s a proud feminist with two young boys, has lived, worked, and travelled in many countries throughout Europe and the Middle East, and loves learning about (and eating) food from all over the globe, watching movies, and gardening.

“I think no matter what you do professionally, you are going to be more impactful if it's something that you are personally devoted to. Making the world a more stable, hospitable, and welcoming place where individuals have the opportunity to realize their maximum potential is something that I am deeply committed to.”
