Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.

Charity is about more than just aid. Of course, delivering food and vital resources to people in need is important, especially in the midst of a crisis – but such measures are merely temporary solutions. If we want to really lift people out of poverty then we need to equip them with the skills, resources, and knowledge to help themselves.

The Teach a Man to Fish gift doesn’t just teach a man to fish, however. Your gift will also give both men and women life-changing skills. Oxfam provides training on improving their catch and teaches business skills so that they get the best possible price for their fish at market, which means a brighter future for their family.
