A warm welcome to a year of change

At Practical Action we do things differently. We put ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world. We believe in the power of small to change the big picture.

Our vision is for a world that works better for everyone.

We’re a global change-making group of problem solvers, knowledge mobilisers and expert advisers. The group consists of a UK registered charity with community projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America, a development publishing company and a technical and specialist consulting service.

We’ve enabled millions of people to make lasting, positive change to their lives, focusing on where there’s greatest need and we can make the biggest difference. We share our experience and expertise through our Consulting, Publishing and Practical Answers services, creating impact far beyond our projects.
