Kali Sichen was born in North Carolina in 1945 into a newspaper publishing family. She completed her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition at California State University in 1977, and completed the program in Traditional Oriental Medicine at the San Francisco College of Acupuncture in 1982. As a student at CSU, she developed the first nutrition program to address hyperactivity in children (now called attention deficit disorder ADHD). This nutrition program was used at the college child care center, and was overseen and approved by the USDA.
She joined her husband, Dr. A. Kweku Andoh, in developing many businesses, all land and/or plant related, since 1978. During this time, they have together researched and written many publications relating to botany, ethno-botany, nutrition and health, women’s health, traditional religions and African belief systems. She is the editor and publisher of all the books and manuscripts written by Dr. A. Kweku Andoh, and has edited and published other books by traditional African healers and African traditional religious leaders.
Kali has accompanied Dr. Andoh on many of his botanical expeditions throughout the world, serving as a field secretary and assistant. They have collaborated in developing the line of herbal products, the Harbinger-Mama Moringa Herbal Nutrients, and the botanical gardens where they reside in College Park, Georgia. She is the visionary for the G.E.N.E.S.I.S. Project (Growing Energy & Nutrition for Environmental Stability & Investments in our Societies). G.E.N.E.S.I.S. proclaims that agri-business should serve as the foundation for the resurrection of African societies.
From 2006 through 2009 Kali was the Managing Director of the Global Model Forest for Self Sufficiency, the Ghana based agriculture Project which developed and realized the vision of the G.E.N.E.S.I.S. Project on a 22 acre plot of land in the Central Region of Ghana.
She has coordinated the student study tours of Haiti and Ghana, and continues to assist with study opportunities for individuals who desire to apprentice in Traditional African Plant medicine being taught at the All African Healing Arts Society (AAHAS) located in Elmina, and Anomabo, Ghana, West Africa.
She is the mother of two daughters and six grandchildren, all who reside in College Park, Georgia with their families.
