"FXB International is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) which works around the world to rescue people from extreme poverty through the FXBVillage program,a pioneering three-year holistic approach to bring about long-term poverty eradication. This approach was designed to simultaneously address the five drivers of extreme poverty – the lack of healthcare, housing, education, nutrition and business. Thanks to an initial capital given to the participants at the beginning of the programme – and not borrowed – extreme poor families can set up an income generating activity and therefore given the capacity to become self-sufficient in the long-term."
