The gift of prosperity

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 Table Turner is a very special e-gift will help Practical Action turn the tables on climate change around the world and through the UK government’s matched funding, it will help farmers in Darfur not just survive, but thrive in their new climate reality.

Your gift will support Practical Action’s work all around the world, helping people find solutions to their toughest problems.

Funds from the UK government matching your gift will be used to help farmers in Darfur not just survive, but thrive in their new climate reality by:

  • Restoring dams and building new reservoirs to make the most of rainy season water.
  • Building irrigation systems to rehabilitate dry, arid land.
  • Re-greening pastureland to build productivity and restore the balance of resources between pastoralists and farmers.

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.
