The University of Missouri Assistance Program (UMAP) is a USAID/USDA implementing partner providing international development consulting and logistics management support. Since 2003, UMAP has provided support for more than 15 workshops and conferences in Africa, including a Feed the Future launch event.
With a home base at the University of Missouri, UMAP has continually sought to build upon a decade of successful partnerships with the UMAP Kenya office by expanding operations to meet the needs of USAID, USDA, and additional development partners. In June 2013, UMAP celebrated its expansion to Ghana following registration as an international NGO under the Ghana Companies Code 1963. Together, the dual registration in Kenya and Ghana provides MU with the legal framework to deliver customized support anywhere on the African continent.
