About Teach A Man To Fish:

Teach A Man To Fish
is guided by a simple, all-encompassing mission: to empower young people with
the skills they need to succeed, in school, work, and life. We focus on
developing and emerging countries. This is done through supporting schools to
set up educational and profitable school businesses that provide real-life
hands-on training and experience for students. This empowers student
entrepreneurs with critical workplace, entrepreneurship and life skills and
mindsets so that they can leave school with the competencies to get a good job

project enriching both teacher and learner skills- building. The project will
further introduce a learner-centred approach for building children’s
entrepreneurship and life skills in school where learners plan, set up and run
a real school business. The Project also aims to strengthen preparedness to
transitional pathways in post-primary education opportunities through enhanced
developmental assets.


In 2021, Teach A Man
To Fish aims to set up an additional 30 business clubs in Rhino and Bidi Bidi
