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: Psychosocial Care

“I used to want to live an isolated life because of my sero status (positively living with HIV). It was hard for me to associate with others in my village freely, until I was given psychosocial support by the Thrive workers. Now I open up so easily and I even joined a [Caregivers'] group in which I save money weekly, with hope to start up a business.” - Jane, widowed and raising one grandson
