Shakira and the World Bank


 Does anybody know whats going on with the World Bank in Colombia? I have a friend who has put in a great deal of time and effort raising money for Shakiras "Barefoot Foundation", or Pies Descalzos as its known in Colombia. I was dismayed to see her posting on her facebook that Shakira and World Bank President Robert Zoellick were teaming up for "early childhood development programs" in Colombia. Does anybody know anything about this organization, or what the deal is with these types of World Bank activites? Also if there is somewhere that I can find a good history of the World Bank in Colombia I’d love to know. Thanks!
