Millions of Tanzanians in the rural areas live in extreme poverty. Without effective interventions many of the extreme poor will continue to pass on their poverty to their next generation. The Foundation for African Empowerment (FAE) is a newly registered nonprofit sustainable human development organization founded in March 2016 in order to contribute towards tackling extreme poverty in Tanzania. Its mission is to improve lives of the extreme poor people in the rural communities in Tanzania through promoting access to water, education, healthcare and livelihood opportunities. By promoting access to education, water, healthcare and livelihood opportunities in the rural communities where extreme poverty is severe and pervasive, we expect to make positive long-lasting impact on the ground one community at a time. We implement our programs through an integrated development approach focusing on four critical sectors of water, healthcare, education and livelihood opportunities which we believe are synergistically crucial in helping to sustainably break the vicious cycle of poverty in the rural communities. Moreover, our approach involves other stakeholders such as community members, local governments, development partners and the private sector. We work toward building a society free of extreme poverty, inequality and injustice.
