We are one of the largest bilateral donors to education globally

Between 2015 and 2019 we supported 14.3 million children to gain a decent education of which at least 5.8m were girls.

DFID’s focus is on ensuring that children have access to a quality education.

My ambition is that DFID increases the number of its education specialists in the field to support the major shift required in education systems and teaching to deliver improved learning for children.
