FXB’s Community Development Program FXBVillage simultaneously addresses important drivers of poverty eradication: economic empowerment, nutrition, education, health and housing. Coupled with capacity building, this integrated approach provides a single response to multidimensional causes of poverty.

Each program lasts 3 years and serves 80 to 100 families (around 500-600 people). Through the delivery of essential services, FXB ensures that families are thriving and children reach their full potential.


FXBVillage program beneficiaries receive a comprehensive package of services.

The key driver to break the cycle of poverty over the long run is economic empowerment. FXB provides start-up capital complemented by financial literacy training so that program participants can secure a portfolio of Income Generating Activities (IGAs). The new IGAs allow families to gradually earn enough income to provide for their daily needs and become socially and economically self-sufficient, before accessing, if necessary, microcredit, which increases their potential to create sustainable livelihoods.

As participants’ abilities to meet their basic needs increase, FXB gradually lessens financial support to encourage self-sufficiency, and FXB families continue to thrive after the program completes.

Our community development program, FXBVillage, has been recognized by UNICEF and UNAIDS as «Best Practice».
