It’s about making sure children have the right people, in the right places, with the right resources.
A doctor, a teacher. A hospital, a school. Food, medicine, books.
It's about working with poorer countries to share skills, expertise and funding – so that countries can stand on their own two feet.
Helping them develop the know-how to run healthcare and education services. And supporting them to increase their tax income – so they have money to invest in these essential services.
So that life-saving clinics and schools are built and maintained.
Vital equipment and supplies are delivered. Nurses, doctors and teachers are trained – and paid.
And crucially, so the most deprived and hardest-to-reach children get food, healthcare and the chance to learn.
UK aid is about making sure poorer countries can stand on their own two feet. And it's about helping build a fairer, safer world – for all of us.
