He announced £90 million for education in emergencies and protracted crisis including £85 million to Education Cannot Wait at the G7 Summit and this week the UK announced a £515 million package of support for education, including a £300 million pledge for the new International Finance Facility for Education.

star this property answer text <p>UK aid aims to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the Government’s objectives as set out in the 2015 UK Aid Strategy. As such, the UK focuses most of its aid spending on countries with the highest need; in low-income, fragile, and conflict-affected regions. Some assistance is provided to middle-income countries where there are still enduring high levels of poverty. These countries may no longer need grant aid, but may require assistance in other ways, such as technical expertise or help raising their own revenue to reduce poverty. The 2016 bilateral and multilateral development reviews (available <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rising-to-the-challenge-of-ending-poverty-the-bilateral-development-review-2016" target="_blank">here</a> and <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/raising-the-standard-the-multilateral-development-review-2016" target="_blank">here</a>) set out our approach to allocations in more detail.</p> more like this
