FXB Village Model

Commitment by

Fxb (Francois-Xavier Bagnoud) International

In 2006, FXB International committed to expand its community-based Village Model Program for HIV/AIDS-affected families in Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Rwanda, Thailand, and Uganda. The Village Model Program is implemented by locally-recruited staff members, and provides a basic package of services to families, including HIV prevention, testing and counseling; educational and vocational training; medical and nutritional support; and income-generating activities. FXB's Village Model Program helps families become increasingly self-sufficient and capable of managing their own medical and schooling costs over a period of three years.
Since 2006, FXB International has doubled its impact several times over. The program has expanded from ten Model Villages to 55. The 22 newest FXB-Villages have been funded by foundations, corporations, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in partnership with the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
