DFID’s mission is to help eradicate poverty in the world’s poorest countries. The priority objective for DFID's South Sudan department - with the international community - is to support peace, whilst recognising that prospects remain fragile and that even in a best-case scenario, continued protection of and support to the most vulnerable (particularly youth, women and children) will be essential for years to come. The focus of the DFID's South Sudan strategy is on sustaining high levels of humanitarian support and the provision of essential services, whilst looking for and supporting opportunities to embed peace. The UK Department for International Development (DFID) has appointed Crown Agents to effectively manage and deliver the ‘Health Pooled Fund 3 (HPF3)’ programme in South Sudan. HPF3 will effectively merge two current health programmes - Health Pooled Fund 2 (HPF2), which provides healthcare at health facility level, and the Integrated Community Case Management 2 (ICCM2) programme, which provides healthcare to children under-five within more remote communities. DFID South Sudan is initiating a new five year HPF3 programme (2018-2023) which will follow on from HPF2 ending in October 2018 and ICCM2 ending in December 2018. This is a multi-donor programme with existing HPF2 donors (US, Canada and Sweden) expected to continue their support. The programme impact will be an improved health and nutrition status for the population that saves lives and reduces morbidity (including maternal, infant and under-5 mortality).
This Girls' Education Challenge Phase 2 will enable up to 1 million marginalised girls (currently supported through Phase 1) to continue to learn, complete primary school and transition on to secondary education. A further 500,000 highly marginalised adolescent girls, who are out of school, will also be targeted to gain literacy, numeracy and other skills relevant for life and work. It is estimated that at least 400,000 girls will complete junior secondary school in the first four years of the extension. The extension will build on what we have learnt so far in Phase 1 and further deepen global understanding of what works for girls? education, particularly during adolescence and in the transition from education to work.
To provide competitive funding to UK and overseas-based small and medium-sized civil society organisations , to support them in contributing to the decline of poverty in a range of the poorest countries, working towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
UK Aid Direct: A challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals.MannionDaniels
Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), UK Aid Direct was established in 2014 as a successor to the Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF), which was created in 2010. UK Aid Direct is a challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals. The aim of UK Aid Direct is to fund small- and medium-sized national and international civil society organisations (CSOs) to reduce poverty and work towards achieving the Global Goals. Specifically, UK Aid Direct funding reaches the most marginalised and vulnerable populations, supporting the DFID agenda to ‘leave no one behind’. This agenda can be achieved through funding projects that encompass service delivery, economic empowerment, strengthening accountability or generating social change. As a flexible fund, UK Aid Direct is designed to be an adaptive and demand-led fund that responds to DFID priorities of:\n\n- Strengthening global peace, security and governance\n\n- Strengthening resilience and response to crisis\n\n- Promoting global prosperity\n\n- Tackling extreme poverty and helping the world’s most vulnerable\n\n- Delivering value for money
UK Aid Connect is designed to create the form of civil society that DFID needs to meet its objectives and the form of civil society the future requires. By creating diverse coalitions to address complex, inter-dependent policy and practice challenges it answers a market gap widely recognised through the CSPR.
To improve English and mathematics learning achievement in all secondary schools , especially for girls. The programme has the following components: making schools safe for girls, improving learning conditions in schools for boys and girls, strengthening central and district capacity, and improving monitoring and evaluation. In the first two years, the project will be fully aligned with Sierra Leone’s President’s Recovery Priorities. Over the five years, the impact will be measured by improvements in the West Africa regional secondary school examinations taken after three years (the basic certificate) and after six years (the senior certificate). An additional 14,000 girls and boys are expected to pass English and Maths at senior level, with a narrowing of the performance gap between boys and girls. The outcome of the programme will establish an enabling environment for secondary school students, especially girls, to be safe, learn and achieve.
To reduce hunger gaps, improve long-term food security and mitigate conflict among 400,000 rural poor in five states of South Sudan. By working together beneficiaries earn food or cash in return for identifying and building community assets (such as irrigation ponds). This enables communities to develop and manage their resources against extreme climate damage and shocks. This will contribute to Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 13, 15 and 16 to end poverty and hunger; take action on climate; protect life on land and; promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.
To improve the resilience of the private sector in poor countries to natural disasters by improving access to insurance products.

To support innovative approaches to improving the quality, value for money and sustainability of basic services in the education, health and water and sanitation sectors in Tanzania
Hunger on a massive scale is looming across East Africa. If we don’t act now, it will get much worse. Drought and conflict have left 16 million people on the brink of starvation and in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment. People are already dying in South Sudan and Somalia. In Kenya, the government has declared a national emergency and Ethiopia is battling a new wave of drought following the strongest El Nino on record. Women, children and older people are suffering the most; more than 800,000 children under five are severely malnourished. Without immediate treatment, they are at risk of starving to death. DEC member charities are already delivering life-saving assistance in all affected countries. But, they need more money to help reduce the scale and severity of the crisis.
The Zambia Health Systems Strengthening programme aims improve the health of women and girls in Zambia across the continuum of care from birth, childhood and motherhood.

Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe leaving behind a trail of destruction, killing at least 960 people and leaving around 3 million in need of help. Strong winds and widespread flooding ripped apart roads, bridges, houses, schools and health facilities and submerged vast swathes of agricultural land. As flood levels recede, work to clear debris, reopen roads and reconnect electricity and water supplies is underway. Some people who fled their homes as flood waters rose are returning home but more than 230,000 remain displaced across three countries and are living in communal sites such as schools and churches. A growing number of cholera cases have been confirmed and there is a high risk of outbreaks of other waterborne diseases as supplying clean water remains a significant challenge. The aid effort is fully underway and DEC member charities are working closely with national partners to support government-led relief efforts. They are prioritising the delivery of clean water, building toilets and handwashing facilities to tackle the outbreak of cholera. They are also delivering emergency shelter materials and blankets, food such as pulses and maize flour, and urgent health assistance. Focusing on longer-term food security and rehabilitation of livelihoods is paramount and some members are already providing seeds and tools to communities.

Market Development Programme for the Niger Delta (Nigeria MADE) will increase the incomes of 150,000 poor people in the nine states of the Niger Delta, 50% of whom will be women. The programme will be in design and implement phases over 4.5 years. Using a market development approach, the project will precipitate changes in 4-6 product or service markets in Niger Delta value chains, including smallholder palm oil processing and outgrower schemes with palm oil estates, aquaculture, fish smoking, agricultural input supply and vaccination of poultry in rural areas. There will be a special focus on gender. It is hoped that the corresponding economic growth will help to mitigate conflict in the Niger Delta.
Hundreds of thousands of people have fled violence in Rakhine state, Myanmar, since August with the majority seeking refuge in Bangladesh.

On Friday 28 September, an earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale rocked the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, triggering a terrifying tsunami that reached 18 feet in height and left a trail of destruction in its wake. The true scale of the disaster is only now becoming clear. Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and entire communities have been decimated. At least 2,100 people have died, thousands more are missing and 200,000 survivors are now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, around a quarter of whom are children. DEC member charities and their Indonesian partners are working closely with national authorities to provide food, clean water, first aid and shelter, while helping survivors to cope with the trauma of the last few days. As the full scale of devastation unfolds, they are ready to do even more, and with your help, support devastated communities in rebuilding their lives.
