Investing in the economic empowerment of Women is the undeniable path to poverty eradication, gender equality and inclusive economic growth.

Since 1991, our Community Development Program FXBVillage brings the extreme poor to self-sufficiency within three years. The FXBVillage provides integrated support in nutrition, health, education, and housing to meet participants’ immediate needs while building their income capacity to become economically self-sufficient.

FXB breaks the vicious circle of poverty. Families are thus able to protect and raise their children, have a positive impact on their communities and lead a dignified life in their country.
