hrive is a community-based organization in Uganda working to enable vulnerable children to live and thrive at home, within the care of their families and communities. Thrive works to keep families together, to ensure children live in safe and nurturing homes and to help children stay healthy and to remain in school.

Program: Child Protection

When Thrive met Sharon's family [above] a year ago they were impoverished, malnourished and highly vulnerable. Thrive intervened by providing nutritional support and medical care. Thrive also encouraged the mother, Sharon, to join a Caregiver's Group; where she accessed loans to purchase a plot of land from which the family live and farm, to improve their home, and to purchase livestock- a cow, two pigs, and chickens - all to support her children!

So one day I was able to tell that my 12-year-old daughter had been defiled by a 35-year-old man in the neighborhood. I took the matter to the Police and Thrive gave me financial support for transport and medical examinations. The man was arrested and is in prison, charged with defilement. We are so glad that Thrive came to support our village.
