Pine Ridge Indian Reservation

We live in a beautiful and diverse world full of opportunities to find happiness. Sadly hunger, poverty, and other issues have taken hold of countless communities like the Ogala Lakota Sioux on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. But with a dedicated team of experts committed to making the world a better place, like the team found at the Teacher Them To Fish Foundation, we can start to pay forward and give back to our communities.

When you choose to donate to our Pine Ridge Indian Reservation program, you can have the assurance that you are giving back to the world. You can have the confidence to know you have made an effort to make the world a better place and have helped alleviate the struggles that can impact Native Americans in Indian Country.

A Foundation That You Can Trust

The Teach Them To Fish Foundation is committed to helping the children on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation get the education they need to succeed in this life.

We are heartbroken by the difficulties and problems these children and their families are experiencing as a result of past atrocities. We are excited to pair with our donors and use the funds we receive to alleviate some of the struggles on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

According to the most recent United States Census, the Oglala Lakota County in South Dakota is the second poorest county in the United States. The unemployment rate is 85%, and it has the highest suicide rate in Indian Country.

For more than 15 years, the Teach Them To Fish Foundation has provided food, clothing, propane fuel, shoes, snow boots, winter coats, and school supplies for the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation children. We send boxes and boxes of food. In addition, we helped to renovate a safe house for youth who fall homeless and are at risk of losing their lives because of alcohol, drugs, or physical abuse. We purchased and donated a 4-wheel drive emergency vehicle to allow our local colleagues to travel and aid suicide survivors and victims and help their families to go to urgent care facilities, sometimes more than 100 miles away through deep snow during our harsh winter months. We have made an impact. To date, we saved more than 4,700 children from suicide, physical abuse, and homelessness.

In 2021, we finalized a new program to place select students with St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire. We raised money so the children’s tuition, room, board, clothing, transportation, and family visits to the school will be free to the students and their families.

 We can continue our work with donations designated for the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation from beautiful people like you. WOPILA (Thank you).
