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.
"Through my participation in the school business, I not only obtained the practical skills of production, but I was able to get the skills of planning for a business, marketing the products and accounting. These have been instrumental in creating my own business."
Sharom, young entrepreneur from Uganda
