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 a critical workplace, entrepreneurship, and life skills and
mindsets so that they can leave school with the competencies to get a good job
or run their own successful business.

 

In our ambitious,
new, 5-year strategy, the organisation has set a goal for all programmes to

model and provide data and learning for a country-wide scale-up of a
sustainable approach to the delivery of this flagship programme.
