Powerful Information specialises in grassroots international development. Our approach is based on more than 20 years' experience working with disadvantaged communities, helping people tackle illiteracy, poverty and injustice and bring about real change in the community. We take great care to understand local needs and aspirations before getting involved; and we only work in countries where we have local partners. Over the years we have supported dozens of practical grassroots initiatives that have helped raise public awareness, build social capital, and safeguard the environment.
