Practical Action is an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that uses technology to challenge poverty in developing countries.
We find out what people are doing and help them to do it better. Through technology we enable poor communities to build on their skills and knowledge to produce sustainable and practical solutions- transforming their lives forever and protecting the world around them.
Is small still beautiful? We think it is.
In an increasingly divided and fragile world Practical Action aims to demonstrate and advocate the sustainable use of technology to reduce poverty in developing countries.
With our commitment to poverty reduction, environmental conservation and technology choice we believe Practical Action is uniquely placed to contribute to a world free of poverty.
