Jim Yong Kim MD, PhD, also known as Kim Yong (Hangul: 김용; hanja: 金墉; born December 8, 1959), is a Korean-American physician and anthropologist who has been the 12th President of the World Bank since July 1 2012. He was President of Dartmouth College from 2009 to 2012. He was formerly the Chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a co-founder and executive director of Partners In Health.
On March 2, 2009, Kim was named as the 17th president of Dartmouth College, a position he formally assumed on July 1, 2009, becoming the first Asian-American president of an Ivy League institution.
On March 23, 2012, President Barack Obama announced that the United States would nominate Kim as the next president of the World Bank to replace Robert Zoellick. On April 16, Kim was elected to head the World Bank and took office on July 1.
Heavily armed police just burned 1,000 homes to the ground to force indigenous families out of the Kenyan forest where they’ve lived for centuries. This desperate community needs our help to save their homes — and the forest — before it’s destroyed forever.
The World Bank has given millions of our tax dollars to the Kenyan forest police who are annihilating this ancient community. And — with new funding at stake this year — the Bank has massive leverage over the government. So far the Bank is staying mum, but if enough of us supercharge the community’s call for help, we can force it to demand this horror stops.
World Bank President Jim Yong Kim says he wants to change the Bank. Let’s hold him to his word, demanding that he call on the Kenyan government to stop these vicious land grabs and commit to new human rights standards for all future grants. When a million of us sign, we’ll grab Kim’s attention by showing burning homes outside the Bank’s Washington HQ. Add your name, then send Kim a message, now: Read More, Click Here
