Communal Capitalism

Community capitalism is an approach to capitalism that prioritizes the well-being and sustainability of the entire community, not just the lucky few. The African villages are built on a communal premise and harnessed to help make agro-businesses that emphasize entrepreneurship and capitalism or 'community capitalism.'

Based on recent views in the United States, there is some growing awareness by citizens across the political spectrum that the Laissez-faire model of capitalism is fundamentally flawed. By reframing the debate around how we can leverage the positive aspects of capitalism to strengthen our communities, the hope is that the Africans can move beyond politics and towards a collective action plan at the district or village level.

  • 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.
