Practical Action is an international development organization putting ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world. We work with people to find solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems such as the 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. We’re a global change-making group. The group consists of a UK registered charity with community projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America, an independent development publishing company and a technical consulting service. We combine these specialisms to multiply our impact and help shape a world that works better for everyone. Practical Action is implementing The Enhanced Agricultural Productivity and Resilience to Climate Change through Solar Powered Irrigation Project in Gwanda. The project contributes to sustainable green economic growth in Zimbabwe by enhancing agricultural productivity with renewable energy and water efficient technologies, in rural Gwanda. With the advent of COVID 19 WASH activities have become necessary so as to ensure benefiting communities are safe from this pandemic. Practical Action requires the services of WASHE officers to implement the WASH component that has been added to the livelihoods project that has been running since 2017 in the target wards.
