It is 3.40 in the morning. I check the dining table one last time to make sure that everything is ready. No fancy meals on the table, only good nutrition that can supply enough energy for my family to make it through the 16-hour day of fasting.

WBFN’s 2014 Annual Dinner took place on Tuesday, May 13. The MC East Dining Room provided an intimate and welcoming venue for about 130 WBFN members, staff, Bank partners, and supporters to come together to celebrate a wonderfully successful and productive year.

The “One Billion Rising” campaign began as a call to action based on the staggering UN statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls.

Many World Bank Group (WBG) families face the unique challenges of moving their lives across the globe regularly. It is often the spouses and partners that play the role of managing these moves, and the changes and transitions that come along with them.
