Back in February........
Back in February, the all talented Colombian super pop star Shakira came to the World Bank to promote a program that supports Early Childhood Development in Latin America; part of the Non-Profit Organization ALAS.
Shakira met with Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank to launch a $300 million Early Childhood Initiative. The program will provide children up to 6 years of age with the right nutrition and education in their growth. Unfortunately Shakira did not sing a song that day, but she did provide oomph to the launch of this program that will help millions of kids in need.
I was able to cover the event and be published by The Washington Post, Blogamole; a MTV Tr3s blog, and a local catholic Hispanic newspaper; El Pregonero.
