Since 2015 Lindex is supporting the volunteer-driven non-profit organization Thrive. Thrive connects global donors and local volunteers to school children living in the poorest areas of Dhaka slum. They provide nutritious food and promote healthy and hygienic habits for a better life for the children. Food purchased goes directly to the kids.
When Thrive started in 2012 they served 250 children one banana per week. Today Thrive reaches about 800 kids who are served food on a daily basis. The parents of these children are very poor and the food is what makes the parents send their children to school. The food they get is: 1 banana, I boiled egg, a handful of nuts, 1 vegetable and a glass of milk.
