star this property answer text <p>DFID’s new Education Policy, Get Children Learning, sets out how we will reach the most marginalised children, including the hardest to reach girls, children with disabilities and children caught up in emergencies and conflict. DFID does this through significant investments both bilaterally and multilaterally. In 2016 the UK spent £964 million bilaterally on education, whilst remaining the largest bilateral donor to the Education Cannot Wait and Global Partnership for Education programmes. In addition, the UK is a global leader on girls’ education, with our Girls’ Education Challenge programme helping a million marginalised girls access a quality education since 2012.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We have not received a request from the Greek government for assistance. If we do, we will assess this on the basis of need. Greece is not eligible to receive Official Development Assistance as it has a GNI per capita of around $22,000. The maximum GNI per capita for a country to be ODA eligible is around $13,000. In the short to medium term it is therefore unlikely we could provide support through the aid budget.</p> more like this
