Kusi’s Environmental Initiative (KENI)
KENI is a sustainability project to ensuring a clean & safe environment towards malaria control in Africa. The goal of the project is to reduce the level of poverty as a result of the costs of malaria. This is toward improving the livelihood of the rural poor in achieving the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. In December 2010, the KENI sanitation program successfully launched in four rural communities of the Sekyere South District of Kumasi, Ghana (Agona, Amenase, Bepoase, and Abrakaso), with the help of the Osagyefo Network for Rural Development based in Ghana (OSNERD).
