Teach A Man To Fish


We help young people in school to prepare to succeed in life outside school

Teach A Man to Fish works with schools across the world to set up school businesses. These businesses are both educational and profitable - teaching students practical business, workplace and transferable life skills (e.g. communication, problem-solving, teamwork) -and generating much-needed extra income for schools.
Evidence from our projects show that young people learn these skills best by doing - gaining vital business and entrepreneurship skills, and they develop work-readiness and transferable life skills as well as the self-confidence to pursue their goals, get a job, or create their own job. At the same time, schools benefit from additional income and profitable businesses become sustainable in the long term bringing benefits to ever more students year-on-year.

The Teach A Man to Fish school enterprise model focusses on supporting teachers to work with their students to research, plan, set up and run student-led school businesses. Practice-based learning boosts the quality and relevance of education provided in participating schools and prepares students for life outside school.

Since our establishment in 2006, Teach A Man To Fish has supported schools in 106 countries across the world to set up school businesses reaching over 130,000 young people worldwide. In 2015 alone, over 70,000 students in more than 2,900 schools took part in researching, planning and/or implementing a school business.
