    Fantastic resource excellently executed!

    Outstanding app Practical Action, formerly ITDG, is a great resource for development. I’ve used them as a Peace Corps volunteer, and now as an Engineers w/o Borders professional mentor. The app makes the documents handy, offline functionality is incredibly valuable asset.

    Wonderful! wow this is the best app ever in my experience, God bless you!


    This app is really fantastic… For me.. As a missionary cum farmer… It is really a great help in learning and imparting knowledge and that also PRACTICALLY.. only thing I need is up-to date information about agriculture and farming in accordance with the region
