University of Missouri Assistance Program

The University of Missouri Assistance Program (UMAP) recently celebrated its second registration as an NGO in Africa with the launch of UMAP Ghana in June 2013. Originally founded in 2003, UMAP has been operational in Kenya for the last decade under their NGOs Co-ordination Act. Together, the dual registration provides MU a legal framework to operate anywhere on the African continent.

UMAP was originally established to provide administrative and logistical management support to technical advisors working on the implementation of USAID activities under the Southern Sudan Agriculture Rehabilitation Project. However, the UMAP portfolio has since expanded to include operation as an international development logistics management and consulting company.

UMAP provides access to a wide range of logistical support and development consulting expertise in Africa through the combination of an extensive database of technical assistance expertise and an established network of travel and hospitality systems. As a result, UMAP can provide technical and administrative assistance within the specified budget to development partners, governments, businesses, civil society groups and communities to efficiently assist in the timely achievement of organizational objectives. UMAP also has the capacity to manage the implementation of development assistance projects and projects in its countries of operation, which currently include Kenya and Ghana.

UMAP's ability to link technical assistance services with logistical support systems has demonstrated our uniqueness in service provision. UMAP can call on our extensive database of African and international experts to provide development consulting services including technical assistance, research, data collection and survey analysis, while also providing the necessary logistical and administration support.

UMAP is headquartered at the University of Missouri in Columbia. With registered offices in Kenya, Southern Sudan and Ghana, UMAP is positioned to serve as your contact in the region.
