At Practical Action, we believe the fight against poverty begins with education, both here and in the countries we work in.  By working with communities living in poverty, we build on their existing knowledge and skills to provide simple, sustainable solutions to poverty.


This autumn, we would like your community, school, church or business to get involved as we continue to stand-up to poverty, and help the people in some of the poorest areas of north-west Bangladesh challenge floods and famine with the power of pumpkins! What’s more, with the backing of the Department for International Development, the UK Government has pledged to match every gift to our Pumpkins Against Poverty appeal pound for pound up until 31st December 2015, meaning every donation will be doubled!

By supporting Practical Action, you can help us extend this life-changing project to another 30,000 extremely vulnerable people affected by flooding and monsoon rains in Bangladesh.

Have a look at the links below to read an incredible case study example, and to find out what you can do to get involved with one of our great fundraising ideas, and double all donations until December 31st!
