About Us

Our Mission & Values

East Meets West’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of underserved communities in Southeast Asia by working in concert with the public and private sectors.

We began in 1988 as East Meets West to help the people of Vietnam, where we continue to innovate today. In Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, we continue to operate under the name East Meets West. In the US, we are known as Thrive Networks.


Our Board and Senior Management team work together to set priorities and direction for the organization so that our work has impact and reaches underserved communities in Southeast Asia. See their profiles and areas of expertise.
