Gifts in Wills

transform lives

Thank you so much for considering leaving a gift in your Will to Practical Action. Special gifts like this help make everything we do possible.

Gifts in Wills transform lives

A gift in your Will unlocks incredible change for future generations. It puts ingenuity to action and allows us to share our ingenious solutions widely, so that others can implement them in more communities and countries. We call it the power of small to change the big picture.

How big change started small in Bangladesh

Learn more from Adib (Head of Programme Implementation, Bangladesh) about how a small-scale project is now changing the lives of people around the world:


“I have spent the last 20 years working in development, my passion is for working directly with the lowest-income communities. It’s an incredible feeling to see the difference that a little ingenuity can make to their lives.

I’d like to share the story of an amazing piece of Practical Action work that I’m very proud to be part of. It began small, in just one community, but is now helping transform lives in 99 countries”

Why I made the gift of a lifetime


 “After seeing the ingenuity of Practical Action in Bangladesh and how the money raised by my church was being spent to help transform people’s lives, I wished to contribute to the long-term future of this unique organisation. Inclusion of a gift in my Will was an obvious solution.”

Jerry Barr, Practical Action supporter
