Help that Matters

Help that Matters

If the world truly wants to help Africa, it should first terminate financial aid in favor of a continental infrastructure that interlinks Africa in a commercial setting. The awful aid process that begins and ends in corruption and most cases in the pockets of selfish politicians is worse than the previous colonization the entire continent (except Ethiopia). It’s regrettable that some African leaders’ core agenda is to exploit the needy, cry racism and continue with their version of exploitation.  Africa needs bold programs to help people help themselves. UTAP-Africa believes in the old adage that states “If you give a person fish, they’re enslaved to you forever, but, if you teach them how to fish, you’ve open the door for lasting self-sufficiency to fish for themselves.”

By targeting segmental rural areas and utilizing cultural alliances, vast opportunities can be exerted within a targeted area to successfully dwarf and circumvent the rampant corruption which plagues many governments in Africa. Africa’s elite, the well-connected, educated and with the knowledge for good governance seems to be totally skewed towards self-enrichment. No regards to the destructive force they put on the entire communities. UTAP's paradigm si what is termed "Communal Capitalism" cooperative competition for the benefit of all. 


  • 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.
