Fighting global poverty through Training and Education
"Global poverty is an epidemic. The Foundation for a Better Life is working to end poverty across the world through innovative programs that help increase a family's income.
By training people in marketable skills, FBL enables them to earn additional income. More income results in improved living conditions and since most schools are fee-based, better education for their children as well. With proper education, future generations can avoid the cycle of poverty.
Your donation to the Foundation is tax-deductible, and all net proceeds raised through events go directly to projects supported by the Foundation. You can donate to one of our many campaigns. Whichever way you decide to donate, your gift will make a difference. Your donation will be used to support our work to help the world's most vulnerable people and communities lift themselves out of poverty.
