UK Aid Direct: A challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals.

Reporting Organisation: MannionDaniels Project Identifier: GB-COH-04105827-AIDDIRECT Activity Status: Implementation Budget: £160,726,957

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

Enhancing maternal mental health and livelihoods of vulnerable pregnant women and mothers and their children to realise maternal and child health in Ghana

Reporting Organisation: BasicNeeds Project Identifier: GB-CHC-1079599-BN-2015-GH-DFID-51A Activity Status: Implementation Budget: £892,799

BasicNeeds Ghana will enhance the mental health of pregnant women and mothers, and through this improve health outcomes for young children. This will be achieved through strengthening existing health services in Ghana to anticipate the specific mental health needs of pregnant women and mothers, alongside efforts towards income generation for vulnerable individuals. Work with individuals and communities will promote positive behaviours to reduce stigma and discrimination in relation to mental ill health through various communications strategies, whilst service users will be better organised to advocate for quality maternal mental health services.
