Shakira Launches The Early Childhood Initiative
Shakira teams up with the The World Bank to launch The Early Childhood Initiative: An Investment for Life forum and press conference in the main complex atrium of the World Bank on Monday (February 22) in Washington DC.
The 33-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer sat down with World Bank Group President Robert B. Zoellick and launched the US$300 million joint initiative aimed at expanding development programs for young children in Latin America and the Caribbean.
“If we want to build a better world, we have to give children the chance to improve their lives, no matter where they are born or how difficult their circumstances. By giving every child a fair start in life, we are improving our collective future,” Shakira said.
