About US:

Teach A Man To Fish believes that education is the key to tackling global youth unemployment and poverty. Teach A Man To Fish aims to eradicate poverty by supporting young people in developing countries to develop skills and knowledge for economic empowerment. We support schools, youth groups, NGOs and training centres to establish enterprises – from eggs to grain storage, crafts to a hotel. These enterprises serve both as learning platforms, and as income-generating activities for the organisation, as young people work on the businesses alongside their academic education. In this way, young people learn valuable business and entrepreneurial skills and the school has the ability to raise additional funds in a sustainable way.
