Howdy

Wonderful news from the CGAOP.ORG team

I guess that's kind-of "the one that got away," in terms of the World
Bank and other "Global" organizations funding "development projects"

Look at the numbers.

How much of the money goes to these types of programs/inititiaves, vs.
DISASTROUS ones in more than one dimension - typically, ENVIRONMENT
and SOCIAL JUSTICE.

OSEA, as we LatinAmericans say.
