Practical Action do things differently. They put ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world.
In recent times the nature of poverty has changed dramatically, demanding new responses from organisations like Practical Action. The climate crisis is affecting almost all the people they work with around the world.
Practical Action help people find solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems. Challenges made worse by catastrophic climate change and persistent gender inequality. They work with communities to develop ingenious, lasting and locally owned solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy. And they share what works with others, so answers that start small can grow big.
The charity believes people living in poverty already have the ability to change their worlds. With the right plans, tools and knowhow, families around the world can build futures free from poverty.
