Our Story

Thrive began as a tiny expat start-up; its tremendous growth has come from the faith and generous commitment of the local communities and international supporters.

We were founded by three moms who arrived in Bangladesh in 2012. They saw hungry children and knew they had to help, so they asked the schools in the urban slums what they needed most. The resounding response was food. The moms replied with a promise to deliver bananas to 250 schoolchildren once a week.

Thrive-Bangladesh grew with the unwavering support of a core local leadership team and their friends, family, and others.

With the overwhelmingly positive community response Thrive received, we expanded our meals and the schools we serve.

Our promise continues to grow.
