In 2020, the World Bank declared that Tanzania achieved the Lower Middle-Income category after its Gross National Income (GNI) per capita reached USD 1,036 as per its established categorization in the Incomes of countries worldwide. However, despite achieving the milestone, most Tanzanian society remains predominantly agricultural and dependent on agriculture as a significant source of their livelihood. Almost three-quarters of the population live in rural agricultural areas.
WHO WE ARE
The nature, agricultural methodologies, and climate change significantly affect this large portion of Tanzanian communities and their production abilities. Due to increases in urban and rural populations, poor agricultural practices and skills, environmental degradation, education and healthcare services challenges and good governance issues such as public service effectiveness, the rule of law and the fight against corruption (petty as well as grand) continue to be the country's significant challenges.
FPADI is taking the necessary steps to equip the Tanzanian community with the tools and knowledge and vie for sustainable economic development initiatives, including ways to eradicate or mitigate the risks towards achieving that noble goal.
The objectives and purposes of the Organization are;
- To promote sustainable agricultural production and productivity by addressing climate change and global warming issues.
- To advocate for women and youth empowerment in development initiatives through participation and capacity building in rural and urban settings.
- To promote social inclusion in programming and implementation of development activities.
- To Promote environmental conservation in the community.
- To advocate for good governance and lobby for the economic rights of Tanzanians .
