At the 2019 MBUDCA National Convention, the General Assembly unanimously agreed to make the construction of the Mbu World Trade Center at “Tscheushop” as the Association’s flagship project for 2019-2020.
Concept of the MBU World Trade Center by MBUDCA USA
The purpose of the MBU World Trade Center (MWTC) is to bring meaningful development at the former Tscheushop or commonly called Sam-Forti (Old Cooperative Site). This iconic site has a rich history that all sons and daughters of MBU can connect with and by giving it a new facelift, it will help galvanize and bring a renewed impetus of unity amongst the MBU people.
This multi-million (CFA) project is intended to build a Multipurpose Business Community Center that will house:
- A modern library that will go a long way to foster the acquisition of lifelong literacy skills for the entire Mbu community particularly the low-income families who have no access to a public library.
- A modern information technology center that will harness the potential of information and communication technologies that will bring development and social change in Mbu.
- A state of the art convention hall and meeting facility that will serve as a venue for meetings, conferences, expositions, cultural and celebratory gatherings.
- A shopping center that will house grocery/retail stores, restaurant(s), bar, lodging and more.
Our goal is to raise estimably $200,000.00 (Two Hundred Thousand US Dollars) to carry out this project. The MBUDCA USA President kicked off the fundraising for this project at the 2019 Cultural Night and the sum of $15,300.00 (Fifteen Thousand Three Hundred US Dollars) was raised thanks to the support received from kids, grandparents, great grandparents, and Mbudca members.
As of December 2021, the Association has raised over $90,000.00 (Ninety Thousand US Dollars) from MBUDCA members and other goodwill donors to help advance this project.
