About US:

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 or run their own
successful business.

We are a small
organization with big reach – Since 2006, we’ve created over 300,000 student
entrepreneurs and 18,000 enterprising teachers through our global programmes.

enterprise: the School Enterprise Challenge. This annual programme supports
teams of students, guided by a teacher to plan, set up and manage real school
businesses. The business functions as a learning platform, supporting students
to develop their soft skills and business knowledge, whilst at the same time
generating additional income for the school. In 2020, Teach A Man To Fish
adapted the model to an out-of-school youth setting for the first time and is
currently rolling out the Youth Enterprise Challenge programme with young
farmers and refugees in Uganda.
