A Progressive View
UTAP offers a progressive view of the water and food security aligned with health and education through cooperation. Most West African countries have difficulties supplying clean drinking water to all their citizens, especially in the northern regions, and more importantly, during the dry season. The lack of water makes it nearly impossible to grow crops during the dry season.
The available water is dangerous parasites that cause various ailments, mainly “Guinea worm” and “river blindness.” These diseases make it difficult for farmers to maintain their crops and for children to attend school. Education is not available to many children due to the reluctance of teachers to live in such harsh conditions. UTAP aims to create a positive domino effect beginning with water security and ending with quality education and agricultural businesses for rural people.
