Thrive in a nutshell

  • Thrive started work in 2017, developing community forestry in 21 Malawian schools.
  • Next we helped a Malawian rice-farmers’ association join the World Fair Trade Organisation.
  • Our third project is a video in 2021 from people in Malawi affected by climate change.
  • In 2021 we are helping 5 Scottish Fair Trade organisations optimise relations with suppliers.
  • A future project may be on how the media talks about other countries.
  • Thrive promotes women and girls; most of our people are women.
  • Thrive promotes measures to reduce climate change.
  • Thrive aims to be thoughtful in the language that we use.
  • Thrive people work with minimum office costs: we are working to reduce poverty.

Thrive is based in Scotland (Lochaber, Glencoe and Edinburgh) and Malawi (Livingstonia).

Thrive is a board member of Scotland’s International Development Alliance.
