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.
Around 71 million young people all over the world are currently unemployed and 156 million young people are trapped in "working poverty". Lack of skills is cited as a primary cause.
