As UTAP AFRICA enters its tenth year, the organization has a number of exciting insights into being successful in Africa. It took UTAP from its inception in 2002 until 2010 to get all the necessary talent and a well-structured process in place.
Education was primary to our success. We sponsored over 40 kids through junior and senior secondary school. Our selection was based on need. Our funding came solely from our socially conscious business model. We donate through Protocol Systems, an open source software provider generated income at about $10,000.00 yearly for the educational endeavor for the youth with a focus on high female participation.
Thorough research, consultation, and helpful volunteers led UTAP to achieve and produce a unique model that had long been sought for Africa’s development. We strongly believe our model will go a long way in solving the missing pieces of responsibility, accountability, and transparency that have attributed to the failure of most African projects. This, we believe, is the beginning of a substantial route to true development in Africa.
