Yes! Totally agree, however, more women are intimidated not because of anyone else but rather due to their lack in education and enrichment. Empower women with basic needs and hear them speak! #Boostherworld

The annual CGAP Photo Contest documents the remarkable ways that access to formal financial services can improve poor people's day-to-day activities. During the last decade, new innovations such as digital financial services have offered great promise for better serving poor customers. Now in its 10th year, the annual CGAP Photo Contest aims to demonstrate the ways financial inclusion can help poor people transition out of poverty and lead more financially secure lives:

Have you ever seen an image of poverty so powerful you just wanted to take a photo of it? Lots of people have been lucky enough to escape poverty but many are still trapped.  In fact, nearly 1 billion people still live in extreme poverty – which means they live on less than $1.25 dollars a day! Help us put an end to it. We have partnered with National Geographic’s Your Shot community to expose poverty. In your own photos, show us what poverty looks like to you, or how people are working to help themselves or others overcome it.

To take part, become a member of the Your Shot community and enter your photo. More on how to participate: http://wrld.bg/PyRU6

No footover bridges in the name of clean air!!

No footover bridges in the name of clean air!!

The World Bank, under its Clean Air Project, is building many footover (pedestrian) bridges in Dhaka. This is wrong on at least two counts. The point of footover bridges is to facilitate the movement of cars, which pollute. Meanwhile, they hinder the movement of pedestrians, who do not. Efforts to improve air quality should focus on improving the situation of non-motorized transport, including walking. It does not make sense to penalize pedestrians in the name of clean air. In fact, street-level crossings (zebra crossings or crosswalks) would help to smooth ear traffic; as it is, cars rush to the next stoplight, only to sit and wait. Most cities around the world have stopped building footover bridges and torn down existing ones, as they are extremely unpopular with pedestrians, do not reduce accidents, and do nothing to smooth traffic flow.

Second, it is the World Bank's policy that all new transport projects must incorporate Universally Accessible Design. There is no way that a person in a wheelchair, or most people with a disability, or even someone with a fairly minor problem walking, can use a footover bridge. A bridge equipped with an escalator is still unusable by a person in a wheelchair. It is obviously completely impractical to create bridges with lifts (elevators) throughout the city. Nor is there any reason to do something so wasteful and likely to land up broken and thus useless within a short period. Zebra crossings make street crossings easier for all users, and thus contribute to independent movement by all, as well as contributing to clean air.
