Who are we?

We are a social enterprise organisation registered as a limited company in 2016, with the intention of empowering communities through history and by supporting communities through education and training. Our aim is to develop an international hub of information, people, skills and resources in supporting individuals in accessing support available within their community. In doing this we also support existing organisations or individuals that support communities and or provide services within the community.

Universal Tree Ltd are forming partnerships and are connecting with people and organisations throughout Africa and the diaspora.  Currently we are in partnership with the Lighthouse Organisation Gambia (LOG) in West Africa through our Universal Tree Africa & the Diaspora Training, Resources, Experience and Enterprise project (UTAD T.R.E.E).  The UTAD T.R.E.E project consists of developing, innovative ways to provide aid and support to those that need it most.  We provide smart solutions to communities through education and training, empowerment through the use of basic ICT, travel, networking, history and enterprise, to create better standards of living for all and most importantly sustainability.

We work in collaboration with our sister organisation LJM Travel 360 on our 'Back to the Future Project' (B2K), Personal Development and Career Enhancement Program (PDACE )and the Global Community Hub.

Back to the Future Project

What can we learn about the past, that will not only help us to understand the current times, but to improve the future?

'Sometimes we have to go back to our past to save the future'

'Teach' the first word in our 'TREE' Acronym 'Teach, Respect, Engage & Empower -  We believe in 'Each one, teach one'. 

 

We learn through history not to be complacent and learn from the mistakes of the past and connect with the world in an inclusive way. 

'If it is seen in the past and is present in the future, then what have we learnt?

Nothing ....History just repeats itself'
