Special Thanksgiving Edition

As we in the USA prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, I wanted to stop and extend my personal thanks to each of you who, through your gifts of funds and prayers, have helped us build improved and resilient livelihoods for smallholder farmers.

As I thought about how to express my thanks to you, a very short story from THRIVE Zambia came to mind.  It is a story of hope.  It is a story of a strong woman named Grace.  And thanks to you, it is a story of how people like Grace are moving out of extreme poverty and into life in all its fullness.

Thanks for walking with us this year.  Thanks for how you have helped Grace transform her life and THRIVE!

- Christopher Shore
