Teach & Pay it Forward


Do you have skills that you can teach to someone? Are there skills that you want to learn from someone?

Are you an accountant who knows photography? Do you want to teach somebody the skill of photography and perhaps help them create a career to support themselves and their family? Perhaps you would also want to teach someone how to keep basic business books? Do you have a love of the visual arts but lack the skills to make it your career, pastime or passion, need someone to teach you the basics so that you can start?

Are you a mechanic who knows how to make cheese products? Perhaps you would want to teach someone how to do a basic car service? Would you like to learn how to make cheese products and start a small enterprise making and selling cheese?

In short, are you anybody who has useful skills to teach someone? Are you someone who is wanting to learn skills to help build your life and potential?


Here are the Rules of the Lifelines School.

  1. Anybody can teach skills to someone else.
  2. Anybody can be taught by and learn skills from someone.
  3. Whatever anybody receives, whether teacher or learner, and who can tell them apart, must be paid forward in some way to other people, who in turn must pay it forward to other people….no money will be exchanged for any learning or teaching.
  4. Paying it Forward means that you must do something that fulfills the Mission of the Lifelines School …….. Thats it!


This is the Mission of the Lifelines School.

“To teach skills and impart knowledge so as to help people of any age to find and build their potential, creative joy and dignity so that they may support themselves and their families and contribute productively to their communities – and to then pay it forward for the benefit of others through further acts of loving kindness.”



Let us know what you can and want to teach. Let us know what you want to learn.
