Reaching Out

FXBIS’ areas of intervention have expanded over the years and transformed into a community-based, multi-sectoral programme approach for a community led human development narrative. Here, we have presented a comprehensive data from the year 2013 to 2017 documenting our organization’s work along our “Domains of Change” for various groups of stakeholders.

Our programme ‘Domains for Change' namely consists of four prongs: Access to Quality Education, Improved Health Status, Livelihood Promotion and Protection and Safety. Access to quality education provides for improved quality of education for children and youth through financial and tutorial support. Improved access to quality health services includes principally drinking water and sanitation facilities for the communities to enhance their health status. We strive to better the living standards and economic self-sufficiency of families through skill training and livelihood opportunities. Protection and safety of a child aims at preventing and reducing child abuse, gender-based violence, trafficking and stigma and discrimination through proactive and reactive mechanisms. The bar diagram illustrates our reach in these five years in terms of number of people, who were accessed in the respective domain categorised, based on age (minor and major), and gender (male and female).

Today FXBIS works in different pockets across 9 States and Union Territories across India. Our multi-faceted approach lends us to concentrate on every State and community with its own unique problem towards a custom based scheme.

Few examples include the Rural Development Programme and FXB Village for remote villages in Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Tamil Nadu, etc., Water and Sanitation hygiene programme in Jharkhand, initiatives to support people living with HIV/AIDS and their families in some states, Urban Slum Development Intervention Programme in Uttar Pradesh, and Suraksha Day Care Centres for children in all our intervention States and the Union Territory of Puducherry. The following bar diagram showcases the number of people in each state who have benefited from these programmes.

Training of stakeholders is an important part of our work here at FXBIS. Policemen, teachers, NGO workers, government employees need to be educated and collaborated with in order to expand and impact more people. Such training has been provided, as illustrated below, to a significant amount of male and female stakeholders.

Domain-wise reach for the period of January to March of 2018 has seen a major reach in the domain for Improved Health Status. Through the FXB India Suraksha scheme, we have tried to decrease communicable and vector borne diseases as well as infant, maternal and child mortality within vulnerable communities. Another 31% share goes to Access to Quality Education where the aim is to provide for quality education through the FXBIS Education Strategy by helping local schools and families alike. The next 17% of the total impact was felt in the domain of Protection and Safety where we created a safe, secure and protective environment for women and children through the FXBIS Protection and Safety strategy. This is followed by a 10% share for Livelihood Promotion where, through the FXBIS, Self Help Groups of women participated in comprehensive training programmes to equip them with skills to sustainably run their business.
