Practical Action

Practical Action is a global development charity with a vision of a world that works better for everyone.   

Working together with communities and our global partners, we’re developing innovate real-world solutions to build sustainable lives and livelihoods for people living on the frontlines of poverty and climate change. We're turning surviving into thriving and overcoming injustice, especially for women and vulnerable groups.  

We believe where there’s action, there’s hope. That societies and economies can work for the benefit of all. That we can live within the planet’s means. That innovation and cooperation can conquer any challenge. We work alongside communities to develop holistic, locally owned solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy. We share what works with others, accelerating solutions that bring about big change. 

Thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery, Practical Action have been working with refugees and local communities for the past two year in Rwanda to grow healthy food, create thriving businesses and protect natural resources - a win for both people and the planet.
