The Department for International Development led international support for the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative (UNGEI) and we continue to support UNGEI to help ensure that commitments translate into meaningful results. We also work with the World Bank and the Education For All Fast Track Initiative, in addition to co-ordinating with our donor partners and partner countries to help ensure that education, including education for girls, remains a priority.
