The World Bank claims that its main mission is, “To fight poverty with professionalism for lasting results.” Many of the mega projects supported by bank funds have made life more difficult for those they claimed would benefit from them. The bank funded a project in the Tana River Valley of Kenya in 2001 that was driven by the ideas of the environmental movement rather than the needs of local people. They will be displaced by the $10 project so that rare monkeys can thrive in a wildlife reserve.
