The Future is KASI

The Kweku Andoh Sustainability Institute (KASI) is named in honor of world-renowned Ghanaian ethno-botanist Dr. A. Kweku Andoh. In its final construction, to be completed by October 2020, KASI will provide a sacred space for researching the ancient traditions of housing development, holistic healing, and agricultural techniques and will serve as a hub for cultural exchange and reclamation. The HABESHA Family is very excited to open these doors inviting visitors from across the Diaspora to convene, dialog and work together to elevate African innovation. To date, the project has raised more than $150,000. Our current goal of raising $18,000 will support the development of a solar powered infrastructure for the project.

KASI rests in Liati Wote in the Volta Region of Ghana near the Togo border where HABESHA has developed a special relationship in with the local community. As a result of the many years of bringing youth to Africa through the Black to Our Roots program, in 2014 HABESHA was presented with an opportunity like no other. The community issued the charge to plant actual roots. In accepting the charge of the community, HABESHA sees KASI as the future of Helping Africa, both at home and abroad.
