answer text <p>The Government have been clear in condemning the horrific attacks on religious communities by violent extremists including ISIL. All UK funded assistance is distributed on the basis of need to ensure civilians are not discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion, or ethnicity. We prioritise reaching the most vulnerable people across Syria, including Christians and those who have suffered from such violence. DFID continues to work with the UN and the international community to ensure all minorities’ rights are protected and our aid reaches those in greatest need.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK Government is committed to ensuring all children are able to complete a full cycle of quality education. Between 2011 and 2015 DFID supported over 11 million children into primary and lower secondary school (7.5 million children in countries considered fragile), and training 380,000 teachers through our multilateral partners. In 2015, the UK again committed to support a further 11 million children in the poorest countries to gain a decent education by 2020.</p><p>DFID is also supporting up to one million of the world’s poorest girls through DFID’s Girls Education Challenge (GEC). In July, DFID co-hosted the first, hugely successful Girls’ Education Forum in London and announced a further £100 million through the GEC to continue this support and help an additional 175,000 of the poorest, most marginalised adolescent girls in the world to get a decent education.</p> more like this

answer text <p>DFID has not made an overall assessment of the effect of funding process on specialist organisations and female beneficiaries. However, DFID has taken a number of steps to increase the range of organisations funded and the accessibility of its funds.</p><p> </p><p>DFID’s 2016 Civil Society Partnership Review recommended a shift towards more open, competitive programmes. This opened up opportunities for a wider range of civil society organisations. This was supported by the 2017 Supplier Review, when DFID committed to cutting red tape to boost competition and open up DFID’s market to a wider range of organisations.</p><p> </p><p>All DFID programmes are required to consider how the programme will contribute to reducing gender inequality. All programmes are encouraged to collect data disaggregated by sex, age, disability and geography to understand who our programmes are reaching, in line with our commitments to the Data Disaggregation Plan and Inclusive Data Charter.</p> more like this
