The World Bank

The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance for developing countries worldwide. Its mission is to fight poverty with passion and professionalism and obtain long-lasting results helping people to help themselves and protect the surrounding environment by supplying resources, delivering knowledge, creating ability and generating associations in public and private sectors. It is not a bank in its most common sense; it is an international organization owned by 187 member countries and is made up of two singular development institutions: The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA).
