History of East Meets West
and Thrive Networks

Thrive Networks was established as a result of a merger of East Meets West Foundation and Blue Planet Network. 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.
