Unified Technology & Agricultural Program
A non-profit and non-governmental organization for empowering African communities while keeping indigenous cultures intact. We provide instruction on agricultural methods to grow agricultural entrepreneurship through research, technology, and resources to attain water security. We involve a cooperative and resilient education plan and business skills to operate on a level that meets agribusiness and profit needs
Addressing – Water, Food and Poverty Issues in Semi-Arid Africa
The Dry Season
In the dry season, agricultural operation is impossible without irrigation. Farmers move to cities, creating population density and poverty. The dry season is one of two seasons in semi-arid Africa. The dry season is characterized by low humidity, lack of water and depletion of subsistence crops between November to April yearly.
The Rainy-Wet Season
The rainy or wet season occurs during a warm season, or summer, precipitation takes place. In the wet season, air quality improves, freshwater quality improves, and vegetation grows substantially, leading to crop yields late in the season. Rivers overflow their banks and drain into lakes within the white Volta river networks.
UTAP’s project expands the existing lakes along the Volta River. The expansion improves the natural drainage system, storing water during the rainy season to last until the next rains. The plan includes two earth dams to augment agriculture and water security during the dry season. The area attracts farmers from surrounding areas and is a breadbasket to man
