KSPATH's Board of Directors Announces Departure of Executive Director & Managing Director

Statement from K'S PATH:

It is with a mixture of excitement and sadness that we announce the departure of our Founder and Executive Director, Ayeshah Al-Humaidhi, and our Managing Director John Peaveler. Both Ayeshah and John have built K’S PATH over the last 10 years and have skillfully developed it into the leading animal welfare organization in Kuwait.
The Board of Directors and staff at K’S PATH will be very sad to see them go, but we look forward to the next chapter in our history. The Board of Directors has successfully found a new candidate for the Executive Director position which we will be excited to announce in the coming weeks. Ayeshah will remain the Chairman of the Board for the near future. We wish Ayeshah and John the best of luck in all their future endeavors, which we are certain will be successful.
From Ayeshah Al-Humaidhi, Founder and Executive Director of K’S PATH:
It has been an honor and a privilege to lead K’S PATH for the last ten years. Choosing to move was the most difficult decision of my life but although I leave with the heaviest of hearts, I am extremely confident that K’S PATH will continue to grow and flourish and serve Kuwait for many years to come. Our Board of Directors and staff are an extremely strong and committed team and will carry the organization into a new era. I will be moving on to leading an animal shelter in the US and know that my years serving K’S PATH has equipped me very well to move into a new leadership role in the US. I will remain the Chairman of K’S PATH’s Board so will continue to work closely with the Board of Directors and new Executive Director who will be doing amazing things for the organization.
I extend my deepest gratitude to all of our board, supporters, donors, staff and volunteers. You have all taught me a great deal about civic duty, service and the meaning of community. Thank you.
From John Peaveler, Managing Director of K’S PATH:
K'SPATH has been such an important part of my life for the last ten years that it is extremely difficult to imagine so much distance between myself and the shelter I hold so dearly. Taking the decision to leave was very difficult indeed. I am however comforted by the knowledge that moving on would not have been possible without an absolutely stellar team of staff, volunteers, benefactors, and board members to lead this organization toward an ever brighter future. I am comforted too that by remaining as an advisor to the board I can continue to provide a part of the leadership necessary to serve the incredible animal and human population of Kuwait. None of the wonderful people and animals I have worked with over the last decade will ever be far from my mind. You have all been amazing, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for this amazing organization.
From Sheikha Fatima Al-Sabah, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of K’S PATH:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, we want to thank John and Ayeshah for their service to the organization and our mission. Although we are sad to see them go, we are excited for them as they initiate this next stage in their lives and careers. In the next few weeks, we will formally announce our new Executive Director. Both Ayeshah and the Board of Directors want to ensure a smooth transition that will not disrupt the great work that K’S PATH is doing on a daily basis and I will personally oversee this transition. We are sure that the organization will continue to grow and blossom in Kuwait and affect positive change in people’s perceptions and actions towards animals and the environment.
Again, we thank Ayeshah and John for their vision and leadership over the past ten years and wish them continued success in their next endeavor. We look forward to the next chapter at K’S PATH and continuing to build a compassionate Kuwait.

LWDLIK - Wishing them the best of luck. They have built a strong, committed organisation that will, undoubtedly, continue to grow and benefit animal welfare and the environment in Kuwait.
