"[The DFID Girls' Education Challenge] is about resources... it's about partnering... but it is also about levering more than just the individual project, so we invested ...in evaluation of the programmes which will track over 70,000 girls in over 37 projects in 17 different countries... so we'd be able to really understand what's preventing these girls completing their education but also what's working and also what's really making a difference in their lives...."
