We want to lead the effort to create a world where all people living with HIV thrive by fulfilling their potential

 

OUR MISSION

 

TO TRULY HELP

Our purpose is to have a deep impact on our users, providing them with a truly transformative space, both online and face-to-face.

 

TO SPREAD A MESSAGE OF HOPE

We believe that we have a message that resonates with many, at this point in our history. We want to share this through our means of creativity, community and technology.

 

TO BRIDGE GAPS

We want to be the bridge between Western medicine and ancient wisdom, and between richer countries and their poorer counterparts. We all have a lot to teach each other.


What We Believe

 

Transformation

We believe that any pain arising from an HIV diagnosis  can be transformed.

We offer a space for personal growth and healing, in which our users can feel safe and free to turn their pain into positivity and purpose by developing their presence and self-awareness.

Creativity

We believe that expressing our creativity is a truly transformative force for personal change.

We encourage our users to reconnect and express their creative voices, both online and offline, and to become designers of their own lives, by learning how to connect and create their authentic desires.

Openness

We believe in the power of authentic sharing and communication, both in our users as well as the way the charity operates.

Thrive offers a space for people to open up about their pain, needs and longings, by connecting with themselves at a deeper level. We also aim to be a highly-transparent organisation, by sharing all our evidence, findings and reports on our site and with partner organisations.

Self-Responsibility

We believe that true healing comes when we take responsibility for our own lives.

We aim to develop our users’ aspirations and self-leadership by teaching them tools and practices they can use in their everyday lives to take back control of their self-care, self-love and their mental, emotional and physical health.

Community

We believe in the healing power of feeling part of a wider organism.

Thrive is a community-led organisation in which users, facilitators and volunteers are involved in its development and there is a clear focus on community-building through social events, gatherings, workshops and online groups.

Consciousness

We believe that raising people’s consciousness has a positive impact on their mental and emotional health.

We encourage our users to make their growth a priority through attending workshops, reading, connecting with others, journalling or meditating.
