- About 200 FXBVillage programs have been implemented since 1989.
- 84,000 people have been lifted out of extreme poverty.
- 86% of participating families remained self-sufficient four years after the program’s end.

Training youth is essential to enable them to live with dignity and meet future challenges. In addition to our Community Development activities linked to education, FXB holds specific education, life skills development and vocational training projects (for example in India, Myanmar and South Africa).
Our health programs improve access to quality health services, disease prevention, Antiretroviral Therapy (ART), psychosocial counseling, nutrition, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). FXB implements HIV/AIDS related programs in India and Myanmar, and specifics WASH programs in Niger, India, Rwanda and Uganda.
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 fight poverty.
