10-Year Anniversary

Impactful data

We produce reliable and verifiable data to support data-driven decision making. We develop data collection systems that are tailored to national and regional reality. Nipe Fagio's database on waste holds over 10 years of data entries.

Effective policy

We engage in national, regional and global policy advocacy to support positive systemic change in the waste sector and build the framework for a socially-just and climate-resilient world.

Transformative Action

We implement transformative projects to enable positive systemic change in the waste management sector. Systemic problems require systemic solutions that are replicable and impactful.

10-Year Anniversary of Nipe Fagio

Since 2013, Nipe Fagio has been at the forefront of building innovative waste management solutions that are socially inclusive, address historical social injustices, and prioritize environmental sustainability. We have harnessed the power of impactful data, effective policy advocacy, and transformative action to create a lasting impact on our communities and the environment.

Our journey began over a decade ago with a simple yet powerful vision: to revolutionize waste management practices in Tanzania and beyond. We recognized the urgent need to address the pressing challenges posed by inadequate waste management systems, which adversely affect public health, pollute the environment, and perpetuate social inequalities. With a strong belief in the potential for positive change, we embarked on a mission to transform the waste management landscape and create a sustainable future.

Over the years, we have pioneered socially inclusive waste management practices that have had a profound impact on marginalized communities. We firmly believe that environmental solutions must go hand in hand with addressing social inequalities. By actively involving local communities, supporting waste pickers, and promoting inclusivity, we have not only improved waste management systems but also created economic opportunities for those in need. Our commitment to social justice remains unwavering, as we continue to bridge the gap between waste management and social power.

Impactful Data

We are proud to produce impactful data to inform evidence-based policies. Through reliable research, data analysis, and monitoring, we have gained and widely shared valuable insights into the waste management sector. This data-driven approach has enabled us to identify key challenges, devise targeted solutions, and advocate for policy reforms at local, national, regional, and global levels. Nipe Fagio’s database has informed decision-making for a myriad of partners in Africa and beyond.

Effective Policy Advocacy

In over a decade of relentless dedication to policy advocacy, we proudly celebrate our accomplishments in revolutionizing waste management practices and successfully integrating them into the broader development agenda. 

Through policy advocacy, we advocate for responsible waste management practices. We recognized early on that addressing the challenges of waste mismanagement was not only essential for environmental preservation but also crucial for overall socio-economic development.

Transformative action

Transformative action lies at the heart of Nipe Fagio’s work. We firmly believe that change happens when ideas are put into action. Through various initiatives and projects, we have implemented practical waste management solutions with a tangible impact on communities, the environment, and public health. 

With the implementation of the Zero Waste model since 2019, we have engaged communities, local companies and the government in designing an innovative and decentralized waste management system that solves waste mismanagement and reorganizes and produces outstanding results.  

Nipe Fagio's Path!

Since 2013, Nipe Fagio has diligently pursued its mission using a three-pillar strategy: data gathering, policy advocacy, and decisive action, all working in unison to drive meaningful systemic change. Our timeline reflects our evolution over the years.
