The work undertaken by Practical Action Sudan is to achieve the organisation’s vision of "a sustainable world free of poverty and injustice in which technology is used for the benefit of all".
Practical Action Sudan is using technology in innovative interventions and putting the organisation’s mission into practice by translating it into a development approach to reach Sudan’s vision: sustainable community-managed development.
Practical Action Sudan’s work is structured under three organizational themes:
We also have four cross-cutting themes run across the programmes: Access to markets, Climate change, Civil society and Gender.
As a Knowledge Broker we offer technical information through the Practical Answers service.
Particular attention is paid to disadvantaged sections of the community such as poor families, households headed by women, the disabled or other marginalised groups. Practical Action Sudan works closely with beneficiary communities and applies a participatory methodology in assessing peoples' needs, monitoring progress and impact and developing and transferring technologies.
