How We Behave

Thrive was founded to work in development cooperation with strong values:

  • Gender – promoting women and girls in employment, training and rights;
  • Language – avoiding the binary “givers and receivers”: we all give and receive
  • Open-minded – listening with knowledge but few pre-determined activities
  • Respectful – recognising the expertise and ability of everyone involved
  • Internationally owned – with board members in the countries of our work
  • Ambitious – tackling big issues, like gender inequality and climate change
  • New players – introducing new and unexpected players to development
  • E-Value For Money – working with Equity, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Economy
  • Self-aware – understanding & acting on political debates around issues
  • Sustainability – interventions which are needed once only, in each location
