Fat of the Land - the truth behind the spoof

Welcome to Practical Action

We hope you enjoyed our spoof video. It was created to provoke debate and get people thinking about development in a different way.

Donating your fat is an interesting idea but it couldn't ever work - people want to be independent and be able to help themselves rather than rely on others.

At Practical Action we don't believe that any imposed solutions are what's needed to alleviate poverty. Whether it's reverse liposuction or something else.

Although emergency aid is vital, particularly in the wake of natural disasters, we want to raise awareness of the importance of long-term, practical solutions rather than imposed short term ones, to help poor people escape poverty forever.
