Delivering Sustainable Results for Children Affected by Poverty and AIDS.
Investing in Families. Saving Children.
FXB carries the name of François-Xavier Bagnoud, a helicopter pilot specialized in rescue operations, who dedicated his life to providing assistance to others. He lost his life at the age of 24 during a helicopter-borne mission in Mali. In 1989, his mother Albina du Boisrouvray, his family, and their friends founded the Association François-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) in order to pursue, in the field of development, the values of generosity and compassion that guided his life.
FXB Country Programs
Founded in 1989, FXB is present in 18 countries and operates around 100 programs, including 47 FXB-Villages. Our team of over 450 employees and 1,400 volunteers is committed to delivering lasting solutions for children orphaned and made vulnerable by AIDS.
FXB's programs are founded on the belief that the best way to care for these children is to address the root causes of human insecurity, and to develop solutions that are tailored to the specific cultural, political, and economic contexts of those most in need. FXB's programs are as diverse as the people they serve to ensure that local needs are met and that children are thriving.
Present in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Europe, FXB's programs and services include:
The FXB-Village program is a sustainable and community-based solution to poverty and AIDS. Each FXB-Village brings improvements in health, education, and economic opportunity to children and families in need.
We don't provide charity. Instead, we equip individuals with the training and resources so they can achieve lasting self-sufficiency and stability.
FXB currently operates 47 FXB-Villages with 3 in Burundi, 1 in China, 1 in the DRC, 5 in India, 21 in Rwanda, 4 in Thailand and 12 in Uganda.
