We will work bilaterally, and through our multilateral partners, to help 11 million children in the poorest countries gain a decent education by 2020. We continue to focus on educating children in emergencies; supporting the Education Cannot Wait fund which we were integral to setting up.</p> 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>In the three years from 2015 to 2018 DFID supported at least 5.6 million girls to gain a decent education. The objective of our investment is to support girls to attend school, learn whilst they are there, and help ensure the critical transition from primary to secondary education. Through this work we are supporting girls to achieve basic literacy and numeracy and are helping to equip them with the skills they need to succeed in jobs of the future.</p><p>Evidence for the benefits of investment in girls’ education includes:</p><ul><li>An extra year of primary schooling for girls can increase their wages by 10-20%, most of which is likely to be reinvested in her family and community.</li><li>A World Bank study found that every year of secondary school education is correlated with an 18% increase in a girls’ future earning power.</li><li>Education helps to prevent early marriage and early pregnancy - girls with no education are 3 times as likely to marry by 18 as those with a secondary or higher education.</li><li>If all girls completed primary school in sub-Saharan Africa and South and West Asia, the number of girls getting married by age 15 would fall by 14%; with secondary education, 64% fewer girls would get married.</li><li>A UNICEF study from Bangladesh attributes the halving of the Maternal Mortality Rates from 1990 to 2008 to the increased enrolment of girls in secondary education.</li></ul><p> </p><p>We believe that investing in educating girls is both the right and the smart thing to do, both socially and economically. Our work is guided by DFID’s 2018 Education Policy – Get Children Learning. This sets out how educating girls can: support better health choices, boost earnings, build social cohesion and help institutions and public services work better.</p>
