Ending Poverty Together

Thrive empowers people with the training and simple tools they need to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods for life — sustainably.

Our Mission

Thrive is spreading a naturally contagious model for growing health, organically. We train and equip communities to create Life Gardens, so they can step out of poverty and teach others to do the same.

We Measure Every Project

We track every dollar raised and show your impact through monthly growth reports and photos of the projects you helped fund.

Using a measure of “social return on investment” (SROI) is part of the pact we make with our team, our funders, and most importantly, the communities we serve. Keeping SROI at the forefront helps us allocate resources to where we can generate the most social good for every dollar we deploy.


Our roots are in Kenya. For over a decade, Thrive for Good has been working hand-in-hand with local communities to end hidden hunger and poverty.

Our staffing model reflects our commitment to building the capacity of local leaders, systems, and communities. Over 90% of our team is East African, and most of our staff — including educators — are recruited directly from the communities we serve.

Thrive’s innovative organic agriculture, nutrition and health curriculum was designed in partnership with local leaders.
