TEACH A MAN TO FISH
Hurricane Dorian wiped out over 85% of fishing/diving vessels in the affected areas.
Our Mission is simple – to HELP Bahamian watermen/fisherman/divers get back on their feet by providing them with boats/gear, enabling them to take pivotal active roles in supporting and providing for their OWN local communities.
THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH 3 KEY OBJECTIVES
1. We are actively creating sources for DONATED new/used vessels,skiffs,motors which will be delivered by our team throughout the Hurricane Dorian affected areas.
2. By pre-determining KEY Bahamian fisherman/divers deserving and READY to accept these boats, we are creating and enabling them to become instant lifelines/stewards for their local communities by providing fresh fish, lobster, and conch for their local community.
3. YOU, the donator, will be connected instantly with the Bahamian family who receives your boat/motor/donation , giving you the ability to see EXACTLY where your donation ends up! You will be connected with the family who's life you changed forever!.
This campaign effort is more then just food and supplies, it's about enabling Bahamians to take an active role in empowering their community and placing that first stone in building a new foundation. But we can't do this alone.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Our team is made of ocean loving watermen, professionals, captains with a passion for the Bahamas and the Bahamian people. Over the past decades, we have built lifelong friendships with our Bahamian Brothers/Sisters and know first hand the devastation hurricanes can bring.
We are dedicated to MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
One of the best things you can do is to share our "Teach a man to fish.." Campaign with your friends and family! This is one of the most effective ways to help, because without word of mouth/ shares, our efforts are dead in the water.
Aside with donations, you can help on several levels including logistical help, vessel transport, phone calls, recruitment, and helping to connect us with Bahamian Divers/fisherman.
This is a MAJOR focus for this relief effort! From a small dinghy to a liveaboard sailboat, your donated vessels /otboard engines will play a huge role in helping to support and rebuild communities and changing the life of a Bahamian family forever.
