Africa:Endowed with Riches & Greed, now the Sun is Rising

Africa, a continent endowed with immense natural and human resources as well as great cultural, ecological and economic diversity, remains underdeveloped. Most African nations suffer from military dictatorships, corruption, civil unrest and war, underdevelopment and deep poverty.   


The majority of the countries classified by the UN as least developed are in Africa. Numerous development strategies have failed to yield the expected results. Although some believe that the continent is doomed to perpetual poverty and economic slavery, Africa has immense potential.

Food, Water , Education by micro-targeting resources and involving  individuals either from the targeted areas that  holds potentials for water, food, and potential fertile agricultural land will prove to be the missing model that need to be used. In Africa, for reasons yet to be understood, education and knowledge is not necessarily trusted to help people. Indeed, most Africa failures is the corrupt entitlement bestowed to the ruling and educated class. Suffice to say the most honest people are the natives with traditional values of right and wrong. The missing component is education and that might overcome the corruption so prevalent across the continent.

The African continent remains by and large marginalized in the world economy, with over half of the population living under US$1 a day per person.




  • 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.
