Thrive is an Association registered as a non-profit organization with the South African Department of Social Welfare. Thrive’s mission is to provide financial support to current and prospective students of tertiary institutions in South Africa.
Founded in 2015, Thrive aims to provide opportunities to young South Africans who have a desire to further their studies but who cannot afford to do so. Thrive is founded on the premise that cumulatively ordinary citizens can make extraordinary contributions to the lives of young people.
"The journey to success is not easy, it takes dedication and a positive attitude to push the boundaries and run after your dreams. Thrive has taught me to always make education my passion and remember at all times that I am destined for greatness because I had no financial worries. Today I smile and look forward to the day when I'll stand tall and I'm very grateful."
"Thrive funding has made my first year experience a bit easier because I had no financial worries. I am forever grateful!"
"It seems impossible until is done, at first, I did not know how am I going to get funding to study until Thrive helped me in my first semester. They did not only provide funding but also a mentor who went all to help and support me not only academically but emotionally as well. Thank you a lot Thrive for believing in me and all the opportunity".
