FXB USA is excited to announce its partnership with InterAction, an alliance organization in Washington, D.C. of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Together with other 180-plus InterAction members around the world, we will work hand in hand to fulfill our commitment to the world’s poor and vulnerable, and make the world a more peaceful, just and prosperous place.
To carry out its mission, which is to “work to be a leader in the global quest to eliminate extreme poverty and vulnerability, strengthen human rights and citizen participation, safeguard a sustainable planet, promote peace, and ensure dignity for all people,” InterAction acts as a convener, thought leader and voice of the InterAction community. It also mobilizes its members to think and act collectively and puts great emphasis on respecting human dignity.
FXB has been devoted to ending poverty and restoring dignity ever since its foundation. In the past 27 years, 17 million people in the most vulnerable communities have benefited from FXB’s presence worldwide. The shared organizational values are the cornerstone of our partnership. As a symbol to our commitment, FXB USA proudly features the InterAction Seal of Excellence on our website from today.
As an associate member of InterAction, FXB USA will receive a number of benefits and services as part of the largest coalition of U.S. private voluntary organizations and partners. Among these are effective advocacy and representation, increased exposure, strong networking and information sharing opportunities, technical and capacity building assistance, plus increased credibility with donors and funders.
Additionally, InterAction will help provide access to top-level policymakers and provide FXB USA with analyses of issues as we impact the humanitarian and development community. InterAction’s communications specialists will also multiply and complement our efforts with media exposure, press referrals and message training.
InterAction works in many areas such as agricultural & food security, gender equality, global health, youth alliance, humanitarian practice, protection and so forth. As an international development organization that has a multidimensional array of goals, FXB is eager to work closely with InterAction and expand our social impact in the years to come.
