About Us

For nearly three decades, Thrive Networks’ programs have benefited underserved populations in Asia.

What We Do

Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of underserved communities in Asia through evidence-based programs  in the areas of  water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); and education. In 2016, Thrive Networks’ programs will benefit more than 890,000 people living in poverty.

Our Approach

Comprehensive Intervention Design

We develop innovative operational approaches, implement programs employing these innovations, carefully measure their performance, scale them when appropriate, and disseminate our lessons learnt to key institutional actors.

Evidence-Based

We rigorously evaluate our programs and innovations, regularly participate in randomized controlled trials, undertake quasi-experimental research, and employ third-party monitoring and evaluation to determine what works best. We document and disseminate our successes – and highlight obstacles – to key institutional actors (local partners, governments, donors, academic institutions).

Locally Led / Partnership Focused

Our work is primarily locally led and in partnership with governments, NGOs and local organizations.

Operate at Scale

We operate at scale across multiple geographies with more than 890,000 people benefiting from our programs in 2016.

Professional Program Execution

Our field staff are extraordinary performers, managing ambitious and complex programs, consistently meeting performance targets at or below budget.
