Access to education is a fundamental right for every child. In recent months, DFID has announced three initiatives which demonstrate the UK’s continuing commitment to improving access to education in developing countries. a) The Inclusive Education Initiative to support marginalised children, particularly those with disabilities, who find it the hardest to attend school. b) In Nigeria, the Partnership for Learning for All programme, which will benefit up to 2 million children through improved teaching, school quality and education delivery. c) The global Education Technology Hub, which is researching solutions that work in low-income settings to increase access to learning materials and help improve how children learn.
