UK Aid Match II

MannionDaniels

UK Aid Match II - 2016-2020 is the next phase of DFID’s UK Aid Match scheme and has a budget of up to £157 million. UK Aid Match is DFID’s fund to increase UK public engagement in international development, while simultaneously reducing poverty and achieving the Global Goals in priority countries through funded civil society organisations. DFID aims to provide opportunities for the UK public to have a say in how UK aid is spent by offering to match every £1 donated by the public to a UK Aid Match charity appeal. CSOs use the match funding raised in the appeals to implement projects that improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. In the first phase of the UK Aid Match 2013 - 2016, a total of 62 grants were awarded to CSOs, working in 22 countries, and 3.6 million public donations were matched. Under the next phase of the scheme, UK Aid Match II, DFID would like to see an increase in the number and diversity of CSOs accessing UK Aid Match funding, a more diversified subsection of the public being reached by the appeals and engaged in international development, and more innovative or non-challenge fund methods being explored. The next phase of the scheme will have broader country eligibility criteria, which will include countries in the bottom 50 of the Human Development Index and countries that DFID considers to be highly or moderately fragile. In January 2018, DFID selected a MannionDaniels’ led consortium as Fund Manager for the next phase of UK Aid Match. The consortium partners are Education Development Trust, Oxford Policy Management, KIT Royal Tropical Institute and The Social Change Agency.

Leave no child behind: Improving Early Childhood Development in Malawi

Charity Projects Ltd (Comic Relief)

Malawian children with disabilities are often hidden away from public life and rarely get an education. Access to education is made worse by a lack of knowledge about children with disabilities, teachers lacking the capacity to teach children with disabilities, and an inappropriate school environment. This project works with several local and international partners in Malawi to support families as they enrol their children in early childhood education, and to build an approach to inclusive education into the training provided to early childhood teachers. The quality of inclusive education offered is improved, and more links are built between early education and primary schools. This work improves participants’ ability to continue throughout the education system. By working with schools, communities and government, this project offers an affordable model so the work can continue into the future.
