THIS IS THE VISION OF THRIVE AFRICA:

to unite powerful grassroots projects and release the human potential of Africa.

42,000,000 lives changed

People of power and wonder

are innovating across the continent of Africa: thousands of resourceful grassroots leaders committed to seeing wholeness in their communities. Loom International believes that together, we have greater momentum and add strength to each other. Together we are better and more beautiful than we would have been alone.

Thrive Africa is a collaboration of grassroots organizations for exponential community impact in the areas of education expansion, health and wellbeing for children and their families, and entrepreneurship for sustainability.

For the next fifteen years, the Social Innovators who make up Thrive Africa have committed to partnering together to impact over 42,000,000 members of their communities. This means millions of children given the opportunity of holistic education, families supported through Family Resource Centers, youth given the opportunity of job skills training, and pregnant mothers and their children accessing the healthcare they deserve. Loom International is facilitating the collaboration of Thrive Africa and serving as needed in the areas of our strength: capacity training and connections.

Thrive Africa is targeting three strategic areas for maximum impact.

EDUCATION

Thrive Africa’s education focus targets:

  • Early childhood education
  • Primary through secondary school
  • Skills-based education at a tertiary level.

It includes innovative models that both meet community needs and create jobs, with an intentional platform to enable learners to be key contributors to their nations.

“My vision for the future of Education and Thrive Africa: To build a strong foundation by training, equipping and empowering teachers, children and communities to acquire skills to improve holistically.”

– Sypora, Early Education Coordinator

HEALTH

The wellbeing of a community is essential to its holistic transformation. Thrive Africa focuses in three areas:

  • Family well-being through the Family Resource Centers
  • A strategy to integrate those with disabilities and provide prosthetics limbs
  • Health Centers, clinics and mobile services

“AndareAfrica’s vision is to bring affordable and sustainable solutions to persons with physical disabilities throughout Africa. Mobility is a basic human right that should be affordable to all people, everywhere!”

– Robi, AndareAfrica

“Together we can create hope for this young generation of African youth, children and adults by creating models of sustainable agriculture, creating value chains through agro-processing and providing a market for local farmers. Africa’s greatest wealth and hope is it’s young people!”

– Nick & Cheryl, Uwepo/Our Trees Our Future

ENTERPRISE

To create real change there must be economic sustainability. Thrive Africa promotes entrepreneurship and job creation, particularly in:

  • Science, technology, and innovation skills 
  • Agriculture projects that secure sustainable sources of food, clean water, and energy.

In the next fifteen years, Thrive Africa’s initiatives will impact millions of lives across East, South, Central, and Western Africa. View the map below to learn more. The interactive map is best viewed on a tablet or larger screen.
