Why It Took So Long?

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. 

Help us improve Water and Food security in parts of Africa. Let's do it!

  • 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, fresh water quality improves, and vegetation grows substantially, leading to crop yields late in the season. Rivers overflow their banks and drains into lakes along the white Volta river networks.    
  • Dredging Existing Lakes

    UTAP proposes expanding five (5) midsize lakes spreading along the White Volta, dredged or dug-up to regain lost storage, improve water supply reservoirs, improve fish habitat, and use nutrient-rich sediments for planting of fruits and vegetables. None of the lakes sediments are considered contaminated in any form.
