To ask Her Majesty's Government what percentage of British aid to Burma goes directly to indigenous Burmese organisations.

DfID directly funds one indigenous Burmese organisation. While this amounts to less than 1% of the total funding allocation for Burma over the four-year spending period, indigenous Burmese organisations do receive significant UK aid through multi-donor funds and through international non-governmental organisations which DfID funds. The UK is investing in helping Burmese organisations to build capacity for their future which will help them reach the high financial and management requirements we set for all partners we support.
