Here's a snippet of Kelli's story:
By Caroline Cox

Kelli Sasser says she felt “compelled by Christ” to help the people of Rwanda rebuild their lives. During the Rwandan genocide in 1994, nearly one million people were killed in one hundred days – nearly 20 percent of the country’s population. The government and military both supported the genocide, and the small African nation was left in shambles.
Fast-forward to 2003, when Rwandan pastor Simon Nziramkenga met Sasser and her husband Scott, a university physician, and explained how access to healthcare was a dire issue. Thus, the nonprofit One Hundred Days was born. While Sasser’s focus is on building a hospital in Kigali, her ongoing mission is to provide healing to the people of Rwanda – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

PINK: Where did you acquire capital to start your organization?

Kelli Sasser: Almost all of our funding comes from friends and family members who have “caught a vision” of how we can offer our core values to people who are in life-threatening need. Our core values include trusted partnerships, sustainable solutions, holistic transformation, passionate service and transforming beauty. Friends fueled by trust and friendship have helped build a community – here and in Rwanda. We have had several multi-thousand dollar gifts, but the majority has accrued in very small donations closer to $100. We have raised more than $300,000. Click here for the full story.
