Additional Information Regarding the Notes

1.         Use of Proceeds

            An amount equal to the net proceeds of the issue of the Notes (which proceeds may be converted into other currencies) shall be recorded by the Bank in a separate sub-account supporting Eligible Projects. These proceeds will be invested in accordance with the Bank's conservative liquidity investment guidelines until used to support the Bank's financing of Eligible Projects. So long as the Notes are outstanding and the account has a positive balance, the Bank shall direct an amount equal to such net proceeds to its lending projects within the fields of Education, Youth, and Employment, subject to and in accordance with the Bank's policies.

            Funds shall be reduced from the account on a semi-annual basis by amounts matching the disbursements made during such semi-annual period in respect of Eligible Projects.

"Eligible Projects" means all projects funded, in whole or in part, by the Bank that promote early childhood care and education, through formal primary and secondary education, or facilitate labor market placement by improving the transition from school to work through vocational training.

            Examples of Youth Projects include, without limitation:

·    Support for parents and caregivers to improve quality of child care
