The survival of nomadic populations is particularly threatened by the lack of clean drinking water, ever sparser vegetation and the slump in millet production. FXB builds wells or restores those that have been damaged with and for the Tuareg population, a minority ethnic group. 16 FXB wells have already been dug. Others are currently being drilled. These wells considerably improve the living conditions for populations in remote, arid areas.
Since 1989, FXB has lifted almost 12,000 families out of extreme poverty through its FXBVillage programmes in Burundi, China, Colombia, India, DRC, Rwanda, Thailand and Uganda. What’s more, almost 17 million adults and children have benefited from FXB’s presence in their communities through programmes of sustainable community development, restoration of infrastructures, education and professional training (especially in South Africa and Myanmar), as well as programmes for prevention, awareness raising, access to water and sanitation.
There are many effective ways you can take action!
Through a partnership
Many partners – Foundations, Companies, Families, International organisations – place their trust in us. Through their generosity and support, they have contributed substantially to the success of FXB’s mission over the last 25 years.
Today social responsibility is one of the pillars of development and all entities – large or small – can play a part to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable. Whether this be through volunteering skills, a particular event or financial support, the Association François-Xavier Bagnoud has developed a number of partnership possibilities to suit everyone’s missions and strategies.
Through a legacy or bequest to the Association François-Xavier Bagnoud
Leaving a gift to FXB in your will means “All the Difference” to children, enabling them to build a future…
An old man was walking along an immense beach at dawn when he saw a little girl gathering starfish and throwing them back into the water. Approaching her, the man asked the reason for her actions. She answered that the starfish would die if they remained on the sand in the sun. “But the beach is huge and there are countless starfish,” the old man observed. “What difference could that make for them?” The little girl looked at the starfish she was holding in her hand and threw it into the ocean. “For this one, it makes all the difference.”
We would be happy to answer your questions on legacies or bequests.
