About us

Practical Action was founded 49 years ago by economist and “Small is Beautiful” Author E.F. Schumacher. With permanent offices in Bangladesh, Bolivia, India, Kenya, Nepal, Peru, Sudan, Zimbabwe, and head offices in the UK, we are committed to working with communities around the world. Using an all-in systemic approach we put the extreme poor at the center of complex issues regarding energy, water access and sanitation, agriculture and resilience, disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation, and market development.
