Welcome to Development in Action

We are a youth and volunteer led development education charity. Our main aim is to engage young people in development issues and promote global citizenship. We achieve this through our India internship placement programme, our UK global citizenship workshop programmes as well as the DiA blog and across social media. Explore our website to find out more.
