About Us

FXB is an international development organization that works to create a world where everyone has a chance not just to survive but to thrive. FXB’s mission is to provide the poorest of the poor families with the tools and support they need to become self- sufficient and give their children a better future.


FXB makes lasting change in the countries where it operates through a multidimensional response to poverty, implementing programs that simultaneously address economic empowerment, nutrition, housing, education, and health. All of FXB’s actions focus on realizing children’s rights and contribute to the objectives set by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, while bringing to life its vision of a world without poverty. Thanks to a rigorous methodology focused on children’s rights and empowerment, FXB gives participants the tools to become socially and economically independent so that they can support themselves and offer a brighter future to their children.


Since 1989, 18 million adults and children have benefited 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.


  • The Community Development Program FXBVillage helps families permanently escape extreme poverty by addressing five interconnected drivers of poverty: nutrition, health, education, housing, and economic empowerment. FXB has developed 200 FXBVillage programs, pioneering and integrated interventions, across eleven countries – Burundi, China, Colombia, DRC, India, Mongolia, Namibia, Panama, Rwanda, Thailand and Uganda – helping more than 100,000 people out of extreme poverty.
  • Education: Education component of the FXBVillage program; life skills development and vocational training projects, in India, Myanmar and South Africa.
  • Health: Health component of the FXBVillage program; HIV/AIDS related programs in India and Myanmar, and WASH programs in Niger, India, Rwanda and Uganda.
  • Women’s and Children’s Protection: Our protection programs aim to prevent and reduce all forms of violence and insecurity, ensuring a safe, secure and protective environment for children and women within its intervention geography. FXB also promotes women’s empowerment and gender equality as key factors to fighting poverty. FXB implements protection programs in Myanmar, India, Rwanda and South Africa.


FXB Country Offices are led exclusively by local staff and are locally registered community-based organizations. FXB headquarters in Geneva, New York, and Paris work closely with the field staff to build their capacities in areas such as administration, finance, fundraising, monitoring and evaluation, and communication.


Building off FXB’s 30-year trajectory of making lasting impact on the lives of children and families, FXB USA identified the following strategic priorities for its second phase, based on 21st century challenges: Climate Change and Child Rights & Migration
