After the 2015 Gorkha earthquake in Nepal, our co-founders asked themselves how they can help the victims of this natural disaster from halfway across the world in a meaningful way. In 2016, Thrive Projects was born and officially incorporated as a 501(c) (3). Since then, Thrive has launched two programs that train locals to rebuild critical infrastructure and become their own first-responders.
Thrive Projects, Inc. develops sustainable, community based solutions through customized vocational training programs and proper utilization of local resources.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
A core belief that Thrive continues to uphold is that education is the first step to achieving social sustainability. By encouraging their students to not only retain the knowledge of the vocational training programs but also utilize and implement it into their own community, Thrive can maximize their social impact.
