In the year 2008, I went for an internship program for 6 months at Ecology Action in California. I learned a lot and felt like sharing the knowledge with many people rather than just sitting in a fence for 8 hours a day. After the internship, I came back to Kenya and on the second week I met Mr. Dale Bolton. I shared what I wanted to do after the internship which turned into birthing Thrive Kenya. It started in 2008 and after 3 years of operation we elevated it to an international organization after doing a seminar where 13 countries were represented and here we are.

Often when the cold weather comes people start to think about flu shots and other medications. Are there other options that can be used to help avoid and treat these awful illnesses? The winter is not just a time of escaping the weather. For some of us it is enjoying the seed catalogs that come every year after Christmas. One of my favourite catalogs comes from a herbal seed company. It may be hard to believe, but this one company sells almost a thousand different seeds with the majority of them having health building benefits.

Over the last several years, the biggest challenge we faced was our ability to keep up. As demand for sustainability in the developing world continued to increase, we continued to run full steam to train enough leaders. These days, sustainability seems to be the buzzword. This word involves creating change in the poorest places of the world in ways that will survive through good and bad times. Our Growing Health program includes the most sustainable practices that we have been able to find worldwide.

By 2015 we thought that we had projects in every segment of society. Thrive was in public schools, slums, HIV groups, orphans care groups and churches. We realized we weren't in every segment when Linda got invited to do a devotional talk in a local women’s prison. The next day Linda was speaking to over 200 women and 50 children. Linda shared her life story and how she coped with difficult life circumstances.

The year 2013 involved the development of many partnerships. Overall, partnerships were created in three different countries. The first being a Canadian NGO called Bopoma Villages, located in Zimbabwe. Their mission involves overcoming poverty by equipping people with the tools to do it themselves.

As the year 2010 wrapped up and we welcomed a new year, we also welcomed a new big idea. The third big idea focused on natural medicine. During 2011 we developed a variety of projects with HIV support groups. As we collected results and studied these groups...
