In 2003, our office established UMAP in Kenya as a non-governmental organization focused on capacity building projects in the region. We opened a new office in Ghana in 2013 to further enhance our capabilities to deliver on the ground support to USAID, USDA, and additional partners on the continent. The establishment of UMAP provides the University of Missouri a legal framework to provide training, research assistance and technical expertise to increase agricultural productivity in Kenya and Ghana.
