Inspiring teacher, Smith Habulembe

"Teach A Man to Fish has inspired me into constructing the first-ever and only elementary and preschool in my rural home area in Zambia. The 3 classrooms, 1 library, 1 recreation block, 1 cubicle for the Matron, 2 office blocks, 3 modern toilets and lavatories, and bathrooms were built over the years since 2008 when I started interacting with Teach A Man to Fish.

Because of your organisation, I am doing what has never been done before for the sake of children.
