Abdullah Namer started with Parkour, or free running, at the tender age of 12. There was no one around to teach him or his friends, so they taught themselves. Today, he works two jobs, and in his spare time he trains little kids in parkour in Beit Hanina and in the Shuafat Refugee Camp.
Abdullah is part of the Palestinian population of Jerusalem, which makes up 37 percent of the city's residents. Usually, we only hear one-dimensional stories about these residents.
Project 37% tries to look past the headlines in the newspaper. This is a project for the long-haul. And it contains stories of men and women in different ages, from different neighborhoods and with different jobs, that make up the picture, partial but important, of Palestinian life in Jerusalem.
