DFID is tackling the learning crisis by supporting children to learn the basics of literacy, including in Commonwealth countries.

We are investing in English language learning, for example through our new skills hub, which includes Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria.

We also work directly to boost the quality of teaching in English, for example through the Girls’ Education Challenge.
