IDA at Work
In Bangladesh, 61 million children suffer from malnutrition and other developmental problems. A low-cost program is teaching mothers from the poorest families how to interact and play with very young children.
An IDA-funded project developed, printed and distributed 78 million textbooks and teacher guides for schools across Ethiopia. The project also developed more than 120 new textbook titles from 2013 to 2015.
With IDA's support, Balochistan has built 649 new schools and upgraded 226 girls' schools. The project brought 39,000 children into school, including 33,414 girls, across 12 districts.
