star this property answer text I am very clear that every pound of UK aid should go on saving and improving the lives of the poorest people in the world. All DFID projects are measured against a robust monitoring framework to ensure they remain cost effective. DFID also supports other aid spending departments, who are responsible for ensuring value for money and effective monitoring of their own aid spend. more like this

star this property answer text <p>Working with disability focused NGOs and disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) is central to DFID’s work on Disability Inclusion. DFID’s leading programmes for working with NGOs – UK Aid Direct and UK Aid Match – both include support for disability-focused organisations. DFID’s flagship programme on girls education – the Girls’ Education Challenge – has reached over 45,000 girls with disabilities, in part through working with disability focused organisations such as Leonard Cheshire. DFID continues to learn from experience of what works in reaching girls with disabilities. For example, building on the success of the programme in Kenya, Leonard Cheshire are working with the education ministry to revise the teacher training curriculum and demonstrate to local education ministries how to support girls with disabilities.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Value for money is not just a matter for those who ultimately foot the bill for our aid budget – British taxpayers. Given the lifesaving work UK aid does across the globe, driving value for money also means that fewer lives are wasted to the scourge of poverty and disease. Driving the very best results for our money is therefore as much about helping the poorest as it is for justifying spending to those paying for it.</p> more like this
