After four and a half years based in Christian Aid’s building in Waterloo the Bretton Woods Project has moved. It is now hosted by Action Aid in Archway, North London. The Project is very grateful to Christian Aid for its generous support of the Project and will continue to work with Christian Aid and all the other groups in the network. The Project is also very grateful to the MacArthur Foundation which has recently approved a grant to help take forward the Project’s work.
Originally created to help the poor escape poverty and deprivation, the World Bank became the most important advocate for the commercialised microcredit model. Yet, critics argued it undermined the chances of sustainable and equitable development to create a poverty trap of historic proportions.
While the World Development Report (WDR) 2018 on education has some redeeming features, it is part of the Bank's longstanding very narrow view of education, and is silent on education financing.
