Pooja Sharma has been appointed as new Country Director of Practical Action Neal. “I am very excited to take on the role of Country Director in Nepal starting today.

“Practical Action is an organization that works with communities to identify ingenious solutions that contribute to their resilience. We start small but think big analysing the factors that can change the underlying systems and identifying where we are best placed to affect change. This is why I love Practical Action.”

I am committed to the growth of Practical Action in Nepal, along with the awesome team of experts I have here. Looking forward to yet another exciting journey and partnering with many of you to make the world a better place for everyone!”
