According to the bank document, the Project Development Objective is to increase the availability and scope of quality care and support services for the elderly in Sri Lanka, for the benefit of elderly Sri Lankans and their families. The project will not only improve the welfare of elderly needing home, day or institutional care, it will also benefit their families, especially care givers who are disproportionately women who might otherwise be able to seek part-or full-time employment. The project will also support the development of the aged care sector in a sustainable and socially responsible manner, creating new job opportunities in a growing field. Younger people with disabilities may also benefit from the services developed under the project.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at: http://ewebapps.worldbank.org/apps/ip/Pages/Home.aspx .
