Is it just about the money?
Just ask… Practical Action
After the Boxing Day 2002 tsunami, we wanted to do more than put our hands in our pockets. Later renamed Practical Action, the Intermediate Technology Development Group charity were looking for help in improving their fund-raising, particularly to corporates as well as to regular supporters like personal donors and government bodies. For the last 10 years we have trained most of their staff pro bono to present their case to both large organisations and individuals. Following up this work, David Milne has been to Bangladesh to see the results of what they do for poverty relief, children’s education and, most impressively, problem-solving confidence in some of the poorest people in the world.
