UK Aid Match and UK Aid Direct launch new joint podcast

30 July 2021

The Learning Post, a new podcast from the UK Aid Match and UK Aid Direct funds focusing on key learnings and insights from the funds, has been launched.

The podcast takes the format of short interviews, typically under ten minutes, with a member of the fund team or a UK Aid Match or UK Aid Direct grant holder.

The first three episodes focus on effective interventions during education projects, which factors had the biggest impact on effective COVID-19 adaptations and women’s empowerment.

You can find and subscribe to the podcast on its dedicated page, Spotify, Amazon Music and Stitcher.
