Thrive for Good

Thrive for Good empowers people to grow health and step out of poverty. 2 billion people are reliant on a diet that delivers little more than calories. Without life-giving vitamins, minerals and micronutrients, kids can’t develop. People can’t fight disease and stay healthy enough to provide for their families.  But the best growing conditions — and the greatest opportunity for change — are found in some of the world’s poorest regions.

Thrive is teaching and equipping people to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods. As a response to COVID, we have worked tirelessly to move our training online and accessible to everyone in the world. We have created the Thrive Institute, which is the first online training platform teaching organic gardening for developing communities. Comprising over 25 hours of instructor-led training, 90 lessons, and 18 demonstration videos, users are empowered with the training needed to start “Life Gardens” in their communities, churches, prisons, schools and orphanages. 

Through our traditional model of in-person training, Thrive has impacted over 37,337 individuals in impoverished countries through 38,506 Life Garden beds. With the Thrive Institute, our opportunity for impact will be scalable by over 20x. In the first year, we anticipate providing online training directly to over 2,000 ‘learners’, indirectly to over 10,000 individuals which will impact in total over 40,000 end-user beneficiaries including over 20,000 children and youth living in impoverished communities.
