The World Bank in Colombo, Sri Lanka is accepting applications for funding projects for local NGOs in the country under its Civil Society Fund (CSF).

Most local NGOs are at the mercy of INGOs and they feel that the GHP will alienate them further, solidifying the role of a privileged elite group of humanitarian response agencies with access to funding.
