Practical Action

Practical Action is an international development charity with a difference, working together with some of the world’s poorest women, men and children, helping to alleviate poverty through the innovative use of technology.

Practical Action’s particular strength is its approach: finding out what people are doing and helping them to do it better. This enables poor communities to build on their own knowledge and skills to produce sustainable and practical solutions: driving their own development. Practical Action works in 13 countries around the world.

Registered charity number 247257.
