Knowledge Sharing

We Believe in the Power of Knowledge

Since 2006 Practical Answers has been providing cost free enquiry services to charities, NGOs, foundations, companies, government institutions and individuals through its multifaceted platforms. The service aims to reduce poverty through the provision of knowledge and information on small scale technologies directly at the community level. Developed by Practical Action this service allows users to tap into a wealth of practical solutions that are accessible through an enquiry management system, web based portal, resource centre, pool of expertise and resource persons across a number of sectors of interest. Practical Answers also produces trilingual knowledge based products such as technical briefs, CDs and video films which are an effective mechanism to address the needs of poor people with little or no basic education.
