Community Outreach Program

Making a World of Difference, Locally

1

The Community Outreach Program has put the World Bank Group’s mission of reducing poverty into action in its host city, Washington, DC, as well as its surrounding metropolitan area. Since the program's inception in 1997, it has encouraged and enabled Bank staff, whose daily work is focused on promoting economic development and reducing poverty in developing countries, to show their concern and generosity to the most disadvantaged populations in the Greater Washington region. Its program activities concentrate on three main areas: charitable giving, technical assistance, and staff volunteerism.
