By investing in our pioneering model, we term communal capitalism, we dare to re-imagine the possibility to help foster important breakthroughs — from water storage, environmental improvement through reforestation along the white Volta river and dredged lakes, research and small scale agriculture, and our continued educational opportunities for young people in communities.
We evaluate the needs of the communities and prioritize projects according to the cultural dynamics. The local community becomes the intrinsic factor in the success of our program. It plays an important part in every aspect of the project. UTAP believes that the success of our development programs is based on our understanding and sensitivity to each community’s culture. We believe that sustainable development and cultural sensitivity are inexorably intertwined.
Through the leveraging of a community’s culture, we can easily foster economies and group cohesion to achieve transparency and create income for the most underprivileged areas. The fusion of culture and development will in turn help combat poverty and move towards achieving security in the semi-arid regions and the world.
