FXB is an international development organization with a 28-year history of breaking the cycle of poverty. Present in 13 countries with a staff of 450 collaborators, FXB’s mission is to help the poorest of the poor escape poverty and establish sustainable livelihoods that give them hope and dignity.
Since 1989, 17 million adults and children have benefitted from FXB’s community development, infrastructure rehabilitation, education, HIV/AIDS and other diseases prevention, awareness and access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programs in over 20 countries. FXB has four pillars of intervention: Community Development Program FXBVillage, health, education, and women’s and children’s protection.
FXB Country Offices are led exclusively by local staff and are locally registered community-based organizations.
