New UK Aid Direct Learning products

The UK Aid Direct team is pleased to share 2 new learning products on value for money, and the role and importance of partnerships in international development.

The first learning product is a case study and it looks at UK Aid Direct grant holders’ Women for Women International (WfWI) and specifically, what it is they did in their project, to demonstrate excellent value for money.

The second product is an audio discussion between UK Aid Direct’s Technical team and UK Aid Direct grant holders’ AfriKids. The discussion focuses on the role and significance of working with partners in international development.
