Ms. Buder will primarily work from NYC, where the Board of Trustees sits, but will be traveling nationally and as needed worldwide to connect with donors. After joining the organization in late 2019, Juliet traveled to Somaliland and met students, faculty and alumni from Abaarso School of Science & Technology, Barwaaqo University, and the Kaabe Schools. She echoed Mr. Desai and Mr. Starr's enthusiasm for the organization's next chapter, "From the very first day I was introduced to the organization, I've been inspired by the creativity and tenacity Abaarso Network has exhibited in achieving astounding results for Somali students. It's a privilege to work with a CEO and Board of Trustees who share my desire to dismantle socioeconomic barriers in our society through education. It is inspiring and contagious to be a part of the daily work necessary to ensure students served by the Abaarso Network have the tools and resources they need to graduate college and use their education to transform Somaliland."
