There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women. - Kofi Annan
KONO focuses on strengthening the position of youths in Kono District in eastern part of Sierra Leone with special emphasis on increasing economic independency and gender equality.
KONO aims to ensure security of young people in Kono District by encouraging them to participate in co-operatives and to become role models for others in the region.
Following the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, KONO decided to partially redirect its attention on Ebola sensitisation activities as well as on raising awareness about this situation in Denmark.
