FXB is an international development organization with over 25-years of experience in breaking the cycle of poverty. Its mission is to provide people living in extreme poverty with the tools and support they need to become self-sufficient.
This showroom, located in the heart of Yangon, offers both local and expatriate clients, hotels, businesses or tourists a varied collection of furniture, lamps, fabrics, carpets, curtains, clothes and toys. These very high-quality items are made by a group of 40 people who graduated in textile, weaving, wood or metal at our vocational training centre in Shwe Pyi Thar or through one of our mobile training.
The profits made are of course used to pay these 40 people and buy the raw materials, but also to provide a small stipend for apprentices from the different sites where FXB undertakes its vocational training programs.
