FXB is an international organization with a 27-year history of breaking the cycle of poverty. Our mission is to provide the poorest of the poor families with the tools and support they need to become self-sufficient and give their children a future. Developed with input from experts at Harvard University, the FXBVillage Model brings the extreme poor to self-sufficiency by tackling the five drivers of poverty eradication: nutrition, health, education, housing and income. In the last 27 years, FXB developed 167 FXBVillages across nine countries: Burundi, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Mongolia, Rwanda, Thailand, and Uganda. It has helped more than 83,500 people escape extreme poverty. In May 2015, FXB released an open source FXBVillage Toolkit and Planning Guide, which provides step by step guidance on the FXBVillage Model. For more details, visit: www.fxb.org
