About Right 2 Thrive
Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty through multi-generational empowerment and education.
Right 2 Thrive believes that education and skills training are keys to breaking the cycle of poverty. Lack of parental education leads to minimal income, which results in the parents’ inability to care for themselves and their families. A child’s education is a luxury too few living in poverty can afford. When children are unable to attend school because of a lack of school fees, they inevitably become the next generation of uneducated residents continuing the cycle of poverty.
Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty through multi-generational empowerment and education of adults and children in the community of Dagoretti, in Nairobi, Kenya. We aim to help residents embrace their own worthiness, become empowered and learn new skills so that they may reach their full potential.
Janet Patry shares the story of why she started R2T and how the mission has evolved in this interview with WTNH's Ann Nyberg.
What We Do
We work in partnership with the community to build culturally relevant programs, which leverage local talent and resources and help residents become independent and self-sufficient. Our programs provide residents with necessary skills to earn an income, increase their employability, build their own businesses, and develop leadership skills. They help participants increase the likelihood that they will have the financial means to send their children to school, keep their family unit together, improve their overall health and wellbeing, lift themselves out of poverty, and assist in the economic development of the community.
