2 billion people – including 33% of children – aren’t getting enough life-giving nutrients to reach their full potential and fight disease.
The problem is “hidden hunger” — a chronic lack of vitamins, minerals and micronutrients only whole foods can deliver. Hidden hunger shows up when the first priority is to get food in bellies, and “nutrition” means meal after meal of processed, white grains and corn.
Hidden hunger keeps people from escaping extreme poverty. It causes kids to miss school. It prevents adults from working when they’re chronically ill. And it orphans too many children.
Until now, a nutrient-dense diet has seemed out of reach for the poor.
But with Life Gardens, anyone can grow health.
How do we tackle hidden hunger?
Simply, through Life Gardens.
Thrive trains and equips people to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods and medicinal plants. With knowledge, simple tools, and starter seeds, people who can’t afford to buy healthy food can grow their own – sustainably.
We call these projects Life Gardens because growing health is the first step to a thriving life.
By 2025, Thrive will empower 1 million people in the developing world to lead healthy and sustainable lives by training them to grow nutritious and income-generating whole foods.
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.
“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!”
“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.
