Teach A Man To Fish was founded in 2006 in London by Nik Kafka. Our mission is to change the world through transforming education in the developing countries. We work to empower young people in Africa, Latin America and Asia by providing them with a better quality and more relevant education so that they leave school prepared to succeed in work, in further education, and in life. We are often looking for people with skills and energy who can help in our UK office. As a Teach A Man To Fish volunteer you can play a vital role in helping young people in developing countries. Our volunteers work closely with the Teach A Man To Fish team on a range of areas including: programmes, communications, finance, developing educational materials, fundraising, and much more. We try to tailor all our volunteer placements to the needs and interest of the individual.
The concept of helping others to help themselves is far from new. It was exemplified in ancient times in the Chinese proverb from which we draw our name: “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.” Ancient it may be, but it is as true today as ever.
Donating your time is a great way to support us and gain valuable work experience!
