The gift of health

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 Health Giver is a very special e-gift that will make water run pure, vanquish germs, stop disease in its tracks and grow bonny babies with brighter futures.

Your gift can help:
Children live free from the illnesses caused by drinking dirty water
Schools install handwashing facilities and teach children how to use them
People living in city slums get access to proper toilets and sanitation services
Women and girls tackle practical problems and cultural taboos around menstruation

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.

Cities that work for all

The population of urban slums and settlements continues to grow, with the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable often overlooked.

Lives are at risk from a lack of clean water services and inadequate and unsafe sewage and refuse management.

We’re working with communities, municipalities and utility companies to deliver sustainable sanitation, water and waste management services.

Together we’re improving hygiene practices and protecting the health, safety and dignity of poorly paid waste workers.

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.
