FXB is a non-profit international organization with over 25-years of experience in breaking the cycle of poverty. Its mission is to provide people living in extreme poverty with the tools and support they need to become self-sufficient.
FXB believes in a world where everyone has a chance not just to survive but to thrive
Created in 1989, FXB – Association François-Xavier Bagnoud, is present in 13 countries around the world, with a team of 500 staff. The international NGO positively impacts hundreds of thousands of lives annually through its Community Development (FXBVillage), Health, Education and Protection programs. Over the years, more than 17 million adults and children have benefited from FXB’s presence in their communities.
My son François was passionate about rescuing people. As a helicopter pilot, it was his job – but also his life. When he died, I wanted to keep François’ passion alive by promoting the things that fascinated him, and by rescuing orphans and people around the world from extreme poverty. And so FXB was born, with the ultimate aim to bring about peace and security in the world by focusing on children, youth and women.
