This week we caught up with past Winners of the Pan African Awards for Entrepreneurship in Education 2014 - Imagine Scholar. We wanted to know what they had achieved since their success in the Awards and were blown away by all that they have accomplished. News like this is testament to the value of investing in entrepreneurship in education. The results speak for themselves.

Inspiring teacher, Smith Habulembe

"Teach A Man to Fish has inspired me into constructing the first-ever and only elementary and preschool in my rural home area in Zambia. The 3 classrooms, 1 library, 1 recreation block, 1 cubicle for the Matron, 2 office blocks, 3 modern toilets and lavatories, and bathrooms were built over the years since 2008 when I started interacting with Teach A Man to Fish.

Because of your organisation, I am doing what has never been done before for the sake of children.
