Karina Weinstein, FXB USA’s Program Director, will present at the Global Health and Innovation Conference (GHIC) on April 22, 2017 at Yale University, New Haven, CT.
Karina Weinstein’s presentation-“Holistic Graduation Model to Enable Self-sufficiency: Lessons from the FXBVillage Model”- is a component of the “Empowering Vulnerable Populations” panel from 1:05 pm to 2:30 pm. She will introduce the time-bound, sustainable and holistic FXBVillage Model and share lessons that FXB has learned from its 27 years of experience breaking the cycle of poverty in Africa, Asia and South America. Thanks to the implementation of 168 FXBVillages, more than 83,000 people have been permanently lifted out of extreme poverty and 86% of participating households remained self-sufficient four years after the program’s end.
