DELIVERING SUSTAINABLE RESULTS FOR CHILDREN AFFECTED BY POVERTY AND AIDS
The mission of FXB is to fight poverty and AIDS and support the world’s orphans and vulnerable children left in the wake of the pandemic by advocating for their needs and basic rights and providing direct support to families and communities that care for them.
INVESTING IN FAMILIES. SAVING CHILDREN.
For 20 years, FXB has worked with the conviction that the best solution for helping these children is to strengthen the social and economic capacities of their families and communities. When empowered with the right tools and resources, caregivers are able to protect, care for, and raise the orphans and vulnerable children in their extended families and community.
“All persons living in extreme poverty have the right to the enjoyment of all human rights, which are indivisible, interdependent and universal. The exercise of human rights is crucial to the elimination of extreme poverty, because the denial of one right has an adverse impact on the totality of the rights of the individual. However, the restoration of a right in isolation is not enough to ensure that individuals, their families, and their communities will emerge from the situation of extreme poverty.”
