History

FXB carries the name of François-Xavier Bagnoud, a helicopter pilot specialized in rescue operation, who dedicated his life to providing assistance to others. He lost his life at age 24 during a helicopter-borne mission in Mali. In 1989, his mother Albina du Boisrouvray, his family and their friends founded FXB to pursue in the field of development the values of generosity and compassion that guided his life.

FXB International (FXB) is a non-governmental organization with a 28-year experience in breaking the cycle of poverty. It is now present in 14 countries with a staff of 450 collaborators.

In the last 28 years, FXB International has developed 200 Community Development Programs – called FXBVillage Programs – across nine countries – Burundi, China, Colombia, DRC, India, Mongolia, Rwanda, Thailand and Uganda – helping more than 84,000 people out of extreme poverty. In addition, 17 million adults and children across 20 countries have benefited from the presence of FXB in their communities through sustainable community development, infrastructure rehabilitation, education, HIV/AIDS and other diseases prevention, awareness and access to water and sanitation programs.

FXB pursues a global approach to vulnerability reduction in several precarious regions of the world. We concentrate on the most forgotten communities, the truly unheard. FXB strongly believes that improving human and social development levels is inextricably linked with the access to all basic human, child and health rights.

Mission

FXB’s mission is to provide people living in extreme poverty with the tools and support they need to become self-sufficient and give their children a future.

FXB concentrates on 4 domains of intervention in order to fulfill its mission: community development, education, health and protection.

1. Integrated Community Development: 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. In the last 28 years, FXB International has developed almost 200 FXBVillage programs across ten countries – Burundi, China, Colombia, DRC, India, Mongolia, Myanmar, Rwanda, Thailand and Uganda – helping more than 84,000 people out of extreme poverty.

2. Education: 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 in India, Myanmar and South Africa.

3. Health: Our health programs improve access to quality health services, disease prevention, Antiretroviral Therapy (ART), psychosocial counseling, nutrition, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). In addition to our Community Development activities linked to health, FXB implements HIV/AIDS related programs in India and Myanmar, and specific WASH programs in Niger, India, Rwanda and Uganda.

4. Protection: Our protection activities 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.

The extensive expertise of the organization in livelihood development, food security, infrastructures rehabilitation, education, women and children protection, global health, environment awareness and access to water and sanitation enables it to pursue a global approach to vulnerability reduction in several precarious regions of the world. FXB concentrates on the most forgotten communities, the truly unheard and strongly believes that improving human and social development levels is inextricably linked with the access to all basic human, child and health rights.

Our mission is not about charity. It’s about releasing human potential and bringing back dignity in people’s life. Then and only then the vicious cycle of extreme financial distress can be broken with long-term results.
