Our friends at Dhaka Tribune featured Thrive just in time for our five-year anniversary:
It started with a simple delivery of 250 bananas to a school in a Korail neighbourhood. Five years later, Thrive delivers more than 3,750 meals to schoolchildren in Bangladesh and the Philippines weekly, bringing smiles and hope to kids full of promise and potential but low on nutrition.
To celebrate the anniversary, Thrive’s founders Gina Gabel and Priscilla Heffelfinger, and Thrive board members Sadia Moyeen, Amna Rahman, and Kanwal Bhagat will come together in Dhaka all at once for the first time to reconnect with the school children.
Thrive will join Esrat Karim from the Amal Foundation and visit a Rohingya Refugee Camp in Teknaf to pack food for families fleeing Myanmar’s violence.
