While only 18 years old, Haifa high-schooler Shani Tal has an impressive resumé of countries visited. Tal, who is clearly mature beyond her years, hasn’t been using her sporadic school vacations for lying on exotic beaches or partying in hip nightclubs. Rather, she has been dedicating most of her free time to the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (healing the world) – trying to make the world a better place for all people.

Tal, who has volunteered with Jewish organizations to work with youth in Hungary, Ukraine and the United States, was exploring volunteer opportunities to help the children of Africa when she discovered the Tel Aviv-based organization known as Brit Olam – The International Israeli-Jewish Volunteer Movement.
