“There are hundreds of millions of people who could ultimately benefit from the FXBVillage program…” – Nobel laureate Amartya Sen
On Monday, FXB founder Albina du Boisrouvray, Nobel laureate Amartya Sen and other leading experts from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health gathered in Cambridge, Mass., to launch and discuss the FXBVillage Toolkit and Planning Guide, an extreme poverty eradication model that has been 26 years in the making. The toolkit, unveiled for the first time on Monday, details FXB’s approach to lifting the extreme poor—defined as making less than $1.25 USD per day—to self-sufficiency and uplifting children worldwide.
