Link :Neta's Tedx talk
For six years, Neta was a criminal prosecutor in the Israeli Ministry of Justice. While working as a lawyer she happened to visit Jisr a Zarqa, a poor Israel Arab fishing village located on a beautiful beach. She thought Jisr would be a perfect destination for travelers in Israel looking for an off-the-beaten-path experience and saw the positive impact that tourism could make on the local economy. It was a chance to re-write the story of her life and make a change. She went door to door in Jisr searching for a partner until she met Ahmad Juha. After a successful crowdfunding campaign the two visionaries opened Juha’s Guesthouse, which has since been selected as the "Best Social Business 2015" in a competition sponsored by Bank Hapoalim and Yediot Aharonot. IVN and the Jewish Federation of San Francisco have invested in it as well. For travelers from across the world, the hostel provides an authentic experience and volunteering opportunities, and is a locus for initiating a variety of social projects. Juha’s Guesthouse has injected hope and energy into the local economy. Some residents are now giving handicrafts workshops; some are hosting traditional meals; others are establishing new shops. Another project estabslihed by Neta is Young Leaders,which provides training for local Arab youth to serve as guides for Birthright groups. The guides share their personal stories and take the groups on a tour of the city, enabling a meaningful and more intimate encounter. Neta was one of three finalists in "women generating change in the Israeli society" - Rapoport family prize. She now lives in Nigeria with her family and is working on a project aiming to encourage and invest in social business entrepenuership .Neta is an Advisor at Nigerian HELP fellwoship (Nigerian leadership developement program) Neta loves to travel and is a certified scuba diving instructor.
