Since moving to Rwanda in 2012, Kelsey has been working with Survivors Fund to support survivors of the Rwandan genocide. Today, the projects she leads are helping to improve the lives of over 20,000 people. In detailing her work in Ghana and Rwanda, Kelsey will discuss what it is that compels us to take action, and our own capacity as individuals to make an impact in the developing world.
