Investing in Children. Empowering Families. Strengthening Communities.

Colombrilla

The Colombrilla Village campaign will raise funds to support a SUSTAINABLE, COMPREHENSIVE, COMMUNITY-BASED program that will address the needs of 80 Colombian families deeply affected by poverty and AIDS.

Working with local partners, the Colombrilla Village will provide families with services to address both their short- and long-term needs, empowering them with the tools they need to rise above the poverty line and become self-sufficient, including medical care; school enrollment, materials & uniforms; nutritional support; children’s rights advocacy; capital and training to start a microenterprise; access to HIV testing and treatment; and psychosocial counseling.

The FXB-Village model has been featured in Forbes Magazine and was named a “Best Practice” by UNICEF and UNAIDS. External evaluations have found that 86% of families benefiting from FXB’s services remain self-sufficient and continue to live above the poverty line, even years after the program’s end.
