RI President Meets with World Bank Managing Director
Washington, DC, USA - September 27, 2006
RI President Bill Boyd met today with Managing Director of the World Bank, Graeme Wheeler, to discuss partnership opportunities. President Boyd described how The Rotary Foundation and Rotary Clubs work together to accomplish humanitarian projects throughout the world. Mr. Wheeler was impressed with Rotary’s commitment to eradicating polio worldwide and the very significant resources that have been expended to date. Mr. Wheeler laid out the structure of the World Bank’s regions and networks focusing on human and sustainable development. He showed how the bank’s 10,500 employees work through in-country directors and managers to administer programs in 170 countries. It would be advantageous for Rotarians and Rotary Clubs to know more about the programs of the World Bank and how they may submit proposals for funding community projects. Accompanying President Boyd were RI General Secretary Edwin H. Futa, RI Representative to the World Bank Robert W. Nelson, Past District Governor Robert Grill and Washington Rotary Club Member Peter Kyle who works for the World Bank and coordinated meeting arrangements.
