"Volunteering with Teach A Man To Fish for the second year in a row has been an incredibly enriching and eye-opening experience. Not only did it give me an opportunity to develop my own critical thinking skills, but in doing so I also got to get an insight into educational settings in different cultures and various parts of the world. Being part of the journey of this new generation of changemakers and seeing the hard work these young ambitious individuals from all over the world put into their projects has been immensely rewarding.”
