What we are doing differently


To be the world’s largest, most cost-effective sustainable natural-food and holistic-health network in order to eradicate extreme poverty.


Create a scalable model that empowers trainers to transform communities by teaching sustainable, natural and organic agriculture leading them to be disease-fighting and income generating.


Empower: We are the inertia that starts the movement, but through empowerment, long lasting sustainable change occurs. We believe in self-sufficient, reliant, holistic development.

Holistic Health: We garden for life, not just a living. Everything we do centers on building health and the environment, naturally.

Innovators: We are creators, leaders, and self-starters. We try new things, continuously learn, challenge convention, and we’re not afraid to fail.

World Changers: We hate poverty and will never settle. Everyone should have the opportunity to thrive. Together, we all can join the movement that eradicates poverty.

Collaborators: Togetherness, partnering with everyone contributing. We can’t do this alone.

Integrity: We are genuine to our brand, purpose and value. We’re not perfect, and we don’t pretend to be. We are always transparent and do the right thing – even when no one is looking.

Thrive is a worldwide not-for-profit based in Canada operating out of Kenya providing organic agricultural training and development programs to people in 4 continents of the world.

We grow high nutrient, disease-fighting foods, and herbs all year round, with scarce rainfall, while utilizing small land plots available to community members. When groups reach food and health security, excess food is used for income generation.

Thrive is providing its services in the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo
  • France
  • Kenya
  • Rwanda
  • South Africa
  • Uganda
  • United Kingdom

Can Food Be Our Medicine?

According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, food can be our medicine. These nutrient density scores are used for health. See what foods prevent diseases and what foods cause disease. 

What happens when your diet is divided equally into the 3 nutrient density columns?

“Before learning about Thrive, I suffered from UTIs, stomach pains, and ulcers. By eating greens, my immune system is stronger than ever and I have been completely healed from all illnesses. I am so thankful for what I have learned from Thrive and I am excited to share with my neighbours and community members.”

“I used to suffer from malaria 4 times a year before I started working with Thrive. After learning about Artemisia and incorporating it into my diet daily, I have not experienced malaria in the last 4 years. My family and I are now disease free!”

Douglas Naibei

“My family and I experienced food shortage for the majority of our lives. When we learned about Thrive everything changed. Now our days of suffering from severe malnutrition are over! We are not only eating food every day, but we are eating the highest nutrient foods that are allowing us to live healthy lives.”

Joseph is a guard at the Kitale Women’s Prison. He has been suffering from diabetes for 2 years. He joined the Thrive prison project in July of 2017. Immediately he was introduced to organic herbal teas to help heal his diabetes. In the past his sugar levels would constantly rise and fall, but since he has been growing health, his sugar levels have been stable.
