Many communities and families in Zanzibar lack opportunities for involvement in the economic aspects.

Their roles in development in general and economy in particular had been a challenge and well not recognized so far and they thus, harshly face economic and social problems. Up until the poverty and backwardness of many communities in Zanzibar become stiffer and stiffer and increased.

In tackling this continuing problem FAYO hardly strives and plays a pivotal role to reduce poverty by improving the livelihood of Zanzibar Communities through sustainable socio-economic development initiatives to make the societies live out of poverty, starvation and miseries. In so doing, there is a strong commitment to creating, designing and implementing various community based income generating projects at the national and local levels.
