Thriving Nations in Kenya

Thriving Nations is currently working with 5 villages and 115 families in the Kinango District in Kenya, which is one of the poorest districts in the country with 70–80% of residents living below the poverty line of $1.25 per day. Most families there grow only corn, own few animals, and get little protein or variation in their diet.

Our goal in this area is to reduce hunger, malnutrition, and diseases from drinking water by educating on and demonstrating sustainable farming techniques.

What We're Doing

Thriving Nations is teaching the people how to achieve year-round production with both crops and livestock, and showing them how to harvest and store clean water. Families are provided startup kits of seeds, fertilizers, chickens, and goats to get their farms started. Now they can have balanced diets and even store food for the future, and when they have reached self-sufficiency they will give back twice what they were given to help other families start the program.
