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. Following an application process, successful students are provided with financial support calculated on a needs and affordability basis. In addition, Thrive students may, upon request, be allocated a mentor who is positioned to provide academic and/or spiritual support.
Thrive aims to facilitate both the acquisition of industry knowledge and the soft skills required to succeed in a particular industry. Once a student has graduated, s/he is required to give back to Thrive either through financial contributions or by mentoring younger students.
The management of Thrive vests in its Management Committee. The Committee is made up of private individuals who are admitted to the Committee by majority vote and share a desire to invest in education in South Africa. All educated in South Africa, Thrive Management Committee members are passionate about education and dedicate themselves to contributing to further education for those who cannot afford education. Members exercise their powers in accordance with the Constitution of the Association and ordinarily meet as a Committee on a quarterly basis. Decisions on the applications received by Thrive are taken by majority vote.
