UWTPM's main aim is to enhance the capacity of rural women to develop and implement programs aimed at wise resource use in order to restore and maintain the environment, the natural resource base and the supply of tree products. This will reduce costs, time and efforts required by rural women to obtain fuel wood and poles for building.

UWTPM provides technical support for rural women groups in activities like tree planting, agroforestry, soil and energy conservation, and food security. She strives to strengthen the organisational capacity of rural women groups involved in natural resources activities in areas such as program management, project design, monitoring and evaluation, and financial management. did not work, did not work
