Cyan International was founded in 2009 and works in partnership with some of the world’s poorest people across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

We build on local skills and knowledge with the aims of:

  • Improving poor people’s access to essential services
  • Securing basic human rights and justice
  • Improving economic opportunities

Our vision is to see the lives of poor and disadvantaged communities transformed – from poverty to opportunity, inequality to justice and despair to hope.
