Together we can end food poverty and child malnutrition. 

At LeBeau, we believe everyone has the right to healthy, nourishing foods –  especially children. Over the last ten years, we've helped over  700 communities and 35,000 people in East Africa to   become healthy and sustainable by cultivating "life gardens."

To expand our impact and help more people, our team members are sponsoring Thrive's newest trainer, Melvin Isanda to develop Life Gardens. Melvin will empower community members to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods and medicinal plants.

Melvin's Story

"I came to know about Thrive for Good from a staff member who was buying seeds from my mother to support the community. After hearing him speak about Thrive's programs, I was very interested in joining.

After my two weeks of probation, I immediately started a project at my home where I planted a variety of greens and medicinal plants. After attending my first one-month seminar, I gained more knowledge about healthy food and I started changing my diet, my family's and my neighbours'. We started consuming the chemical-free foods that we planted. I specifically started noticing changes in my skin, whereby the white dry spots had disappeared and my stomach stopped grumbling. I started asking others - my dad's ulcers had subsided and my neighbours' kids were not suffering from malaria as frequently.

My passion for growing health and improving the soil in simple ways increased from the changes I was seeing.

I take any opportunity that I get to explain the importance of greens and chemical-free foods in our bodies. Community members embrace this knowledge because they could see the direct benefits of our health.

I have started 12 Life Garden projects in spaces like schools, churches, and different community groups.

I am very grateful to have this opportunity and to Thrive for passing the knowledge freely to me. I am doing what makes me happy which is seeing lives being transformed. My target is to reach 100 families by the end of the year."

Make a difference for a child, today.

  • 1 in 3 children in the developing world aren't getting enough micronutrients and are malnourished.
  • For children under 5 in developing countries, 40% of deaths could be prevented with access to nutritious food.

Your donation dollars are going far!

With knowledge, simple tools, and starter seeds, people who can't afford to buy healthy food can grow their own - almost anywhere in the world. It costs $15 per person to produce nutrient-dense, life-giving foods and proven natural medicines and provide a sustainable source of potential income generation.
