The gift of opportunity

THIS IS NO ORDINARY PRESENT 

This is a gift that will help ordinary people living in extraordinary circumstances create a bright future for their families.

The Acclimatiser is a very special e-gift that will help families stay together, create opportunities despite the climate challenges, turn survivors into thrivers and build futures full of promise.

Your gift can help:
Smallholder farmers adapt and thrive despite the changing climate
Families stay safe and protect their belongings when disasters strike
Men remain in their rural homes with their families, instead of leaving to work in cities
Communities prepare for disasters with detailed evacuation plans

Thank you for visiting our website to find out more about your e-gift. We’re Practical Action. Let us tell you a little more about who we are, what we do and what makes this gift so incredible…

Big change starts small

Practical Action is an international development organisation that puts ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world.

We help people find solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems. Challenges made worse by catastrophic climate change and persistent gender inequality. We work with communities to develop ingenious, lasting and locally owned solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy. And we share what works with others, so answers that start small can grow big.

Solutions for the new reality 

Climate change is leading to increasingly frequent and more severe hazards and disasters. Poor people are the most vulnerable and hardest hit.

We’re helping to make resilience a way of life by advising people on how to adapt their lives to a changing climate and put plans and systems in place to predict disasters and minimise their impact.

And we’re contributing to joint efforts to promote environmentally sound technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development.

Join the ingenuity revolution 

Practical Action is at the heart of a powerful community of support – a dynamic team of alternative thinkers and bold collaborators, standing together for a world that works better for everyone. Together we can make the world work better for everyone.
