The organization empowers communities on initiating income-generating activities for reducing poverty and building confidence and skills to communities on environmental conservation management practices. The organization's mission is contributing towards the sustainable and clean environment within the Lake Victoria basin through involvement and participation of communities while the vision of the organization is “to have a safe and clean environment to realize healthy and prosperous communities.
