TeachFish.org provides a model, for creating small economic communities in deprived areas. The model is currently being proven in Nueva Espanola (Mogote) Honduras. In this community 5 small businesses have been incubated by matching entrepreneurs, resources, and training from the United States. This has created a small economic system of cash and barter. The humility of a handout has been replaced with the pride of having a job.

Leveraging entrepreneurs and technology to break the cycle of poverty and despair.


Cypress Institute d.b.a. TeachFish.org is a non-profit 501C3 founded in 1999 whose purpose is to break the cycle of poverty and despair through entrepreneurship and technology.
TeachFish.org, gives the poor the tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty, providing opportunity through matching successful entrepreneurs and their companies with mentoring and other resources that help "micro-entrepreneurs" reap the rewards of their own labor.

How it works:

We use scrap resources and innovative technology to fight global poverty and bring opportunities to the world's poorest people. With business training, resource matching and web based mentoring, we help the poor start businesses and escape poverty. So far we have created 5 businesses in one of the poorest communities in the world.
