Since our inception in 1981, South Asia Partnership Sri Lanka has carried out scores of projects across the length and breadth of Sri Lanka. We have been at the forefront of utilising sustainable and self-reliant methods for socio-economic development for the poorest and most socially excluded communities in the country. We have strived to improve the livelihoods of low-income groups in rural and urban areas by improving local infrastructure, including sanitation and irrigation systems, providing access to safe water, agro well construction, and housing schemes, and by providing access to financial resources, training and awareness building, and agricultural development. We have demonstrated strong institutional capacity and project implementation in the management of our finances in particular, and in the mobilisation of our resources. We have robust financial planning, management, and resource allocation systems that have allowed us to handle large sums from a wide range of international donors over the past 30 years.
