We find out what people are doing and help them to do it better. Through technology we enable poor communities to build on their skills and knowledge to produce sustainable and practical solutions. Through projects on the ground, we improve the lives of over a million people every year. Our programmes give poor people access to modern energy, and help them to grow the food they need sustainably. We help people in urban areas get the clean water and sanitation they need, and reduce the risk of disasters for the most vulnerable.
