The parable of the fisherman says:

"If you give a person a fish, you feed them for a day. If you teach them how to fish, you feed them for a lifetime." (Of course, once the person learns how to fish, they must actually fish if they are going to feed themselves.)

The parable can be extended so that subsequent generations also learn how to fish and therefore are able to feed themselves.

To become an organisation of people who know how to learn and how to create a learning environment in which others can learn, people progress through five developmental levels (the extended parable of the fisherman) :

1. I learn how to fish - and can feed you and me

2. I learn how to teach fishing. I teach you to fish and you can feed yourself

3. I teach you how to teach fishing;

4. You teach them how to fish, and you can feed your community

5. You teach them how to teach fishing, and together we can we can feed the world.

Now thats what we call it as a purffect parable on fishing..
