Board of Trustees

Meet our Board of Trustees. Each is an unpaid. Each volunteers his or her time to help the Teach Them To Fish Foundation do its share to eliminate the unimaginable human suffering caused by poverty in the developing world by building primary schools for orphaned and underprivileged children in rural Cambodia and Uganda while, at all times, addressing the importance of enabling girls at risk for human trafficking to attend school for the first time in their lives.
