History

In 2003, Sonu Kaur, a teacher and social worker from Nepal, saw the desperate need for quality education and positive influence in her community of Baljeet Nagar. Using her training as a teacher, she began teaching underprivileged children in a small space at the back of her family home. Over the years, many children were educated in Sonu's home.

By 2010, Sonu began exploring new ways to make a positive impact on the lives of those around her. Her and her husband, Raju, began counselling women and couples in their community through what is now known as the Women’s Empowerment Programme.

That same year she met David, from Australia, and Victoria, from England. New friendships were formed and together they were able to open three classrooms which formed the Main School and trained teachers to work there.

Since then, this project has gone from strength to strength. Thrive Seed now has four primary schools (nursery to fifth grade) in four different slums (Baljeet Nagar, Nehru Nagar, Zakheera and Pandav Nagar) in West Delhi. The Women's Empowerment Programme operates in two slums (Nehru Nagar and Pandav Nagar) and a Community Development Programme has also begun.

Thrive Seed officially obtained NGO status in 2015.

Our volunteers and kind donors play a major part in Thrive Seed's success. Without them, none of this would be possible. There is still plenty of work to be done in the slums of New Delhi, but we at Thrive Seed are positive that together we can continue to see the people of New Delhi thrive.
