Water. Women. World.

We are the Cycle

The Cycle is on a mission to strengthen people and planet through the empowerment of women. We believe gender equality is the key to a thriving world.

Hear about our impact from the people we work with

"I am the sole carer for my two small children and aged parents-in-law, it is hard work but I keep smiling. To help me care for my family, The Cycle built an eco-toilet for us to use. My children are healthy now which means I don’t have to spend money on medicines, so I send them to school to complete their studies. Things are easier now, so I can smile even more!"
