Commit & Act (US) is dedicated to empowering vulnerable populations in crisis areas by providing scientifically based, culturally sensitive training to health care workers and other professionals so they can move their communities forward and create new beginnings. The organization also provides shelter, medical and legal help to victims of violence. In Sierra Leone, Commit & Act runs a shelter for girls who have experienced sexual violence or domestic abuse.
Ruben Rozental was introduced to the organization in 2015 by a good friend and immediately agreed to get involved. Ruben quickly improved the organization’s financial record keeping, allowing Commit & Act to secure a major grant. In addition to providing accounting and financial expertise, Ruben is a major fundraiser for the organization and has even volunteered in Sierra Leone, directly serving women and children in the shelter. Ruben recognizes the tremendous needs in the country and this motivates him to continue fundraising and scaling operations to serve more individuals impacted by war and domestic violence in Sierra Leone.
