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. 
In 2020, over 1 million refugees are displaced in Uganda, 80% of whom
live below the poverty line. More than 60% are under the age of 18. The
Ministry of Education, together with the Office of the Prime Minister and a
range of humanitarian actors has responded to the crisis with the expansion of
primary education in the settlements. However, secondary education places are
limited and economic opportunities are few, which creates a pressing need to
equip learners with entrepreneurship and life skills to prepare them for
self-sufficiency whenever they finish their education.


The proposed project, School Enterprise Challenge for ECW schools, will
introduce our proven educational School-Business programme into 60 primary
schools in four settlements (Palabek, Bidi Bidi, Kyangwali and Rhino
Settlements) over 24 months, enriching both teacher and learner
skills-building. It introduces 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.
Teach A Man To Fish has been active in Uganda since 2009 and has been
progressively scaling up its work since 2014. Through our flagship programme,
the School Enterprise Challenge, and through bespoke training and consultancy
work, Teach A Man to Fish Uganda currently supports schools at primary,
secondary and vocational level as well as NGOs and individual entrepreneurs.
Teach A Man To Fish Uganda currently has a team of 13 staff and 1 Volunteers
based in Kampala. For more information on Teach A Man To Fish, our work, impact
and youth model, please see annex
