FEMAPO have a vision of eradicating poverty in Tanzanian rural communities through the promotion of sustainable utilization of natural resources, and sustainable environment management.

FEMAPO seeks to raise the standard of living of the people of Tanzania by getting them to responsibly participate in the improvement of various aspects of the environment in which they live. We are committed to realizing this mission by providing the targeted population with the needed technical and material support for them to be able to protect and manage their environment responsibly.

FEMAPO believes that, environment forms the entire base of human life. Without it there is no life at all. Environmental degradation is a serious issue in the 21st century. Environmental destruction results from human activities and development problems, which can be minimized if not totally controlled. On other hand, POVERTY poses a great threat to human life. Therefore, there is a need for a concerted effort to halt the spread of POVERTY threats by devising control and preventive measures against it.
FEMAPO as a non – governmental association aims, on one hand, to promote sustainable utilization of natural resources and sustainable environmental management and contribute in the fight against POVERTY pandemic on the other. FEMAPO recognizes government efforts to reduce poverty and integrate environmental concerns in development activities; since government resources are limited hence, therefore individuals, organizations and other stakeholders need to combine their efforts with local and international partners to fight poverty and bring about clean, quality and safe environment.
It is from this background that FEMAPO is formed to contribute significantly in the Poverty reduction campaigns and environmental management initiatives.
