Reut is very committed to the field of international development through direct work with communities. Work in the Glocal program has exposed her to various work methods from dozens of organizations. She happily brings the knowledge and experience to support specific NALA activities, such as formulating work strategies, long-term planning and control of ongoing activities, as well as other issues that I will be required to do.
