RIGHT 2 THRIVE
February 26, 2013

Right 2 Thrive was introduced to me, by its founder, Janet Patry. From the moment Janet began this organization, her passion for it has become contagious. She believes not only in what she and her organization are doing, but she believes in the children and people of Kenya. Her story is an inspirational one. She went to Kenya as a volunteer and fell in love with the people. She wanted to help them to help themselves. I have donated to Right 2 Thrive on various occasions. Each time I was able to see (through photographs, video and online posts) the impact my donations are having on the lives of the people in Kenya. Right 2 Thrive works to create self sustaining communities through education. I

Right 2 Thrive's work does not only reach those in Kenya. Janet Patry reaches out to young people here in the United States as well. She has visited my alma mater, Sacred Heart Academy. At SHA, she worked with the young women to find their passion within. She called them to action. She asked them to reach out and make the world a better place for all of us. They have found ways to give, not only to Right 2 Thrive, but to others as well.

I was able to attend a presentation that Janet gave to students in 3rd and 4th grade. Janet educated the students on the geography, culture and economy of Kenya. She passed around examples of currency and crafts made by Kenyans. The children learned that though they are thousands of miles away and technologically more advanced, the children in Kenya were very similar to children here. She again called these children to action, asking them to do small things to make the world a better place.

I was also able to attend a Right 2 Thrive fundraiser in Janet's hometown. The outpouring of support that evening and in the weeks that followed were truly inspirational! Janet and the Right 2 Thrive organization have made each donor feel as though they are truly part of the organization, not just a bystander. Right 2 Thrive provides many updates on what they are doing in Kenya. They utilize not only their website, but social media, like Facebook, to keep their supporters constantly updated. I know the people there, in Kenya, by name, even though I have never met them. I really feel the difference my donations make!
