Do you think
we're useless?

Help young people find their purpose...

Young people feel useless, but all they need is a new pathway.

All around the world, young people are living life without purpose. Without the basics of reading, writing and maths, young people can't find work, which leaves them feeling lost.

For Taianui, a young man in Kiribati, life hasn't been easy.

When Taianui was only young, his father passed away, leaving his mum alone to support the family. When she became too ill to work, Taianui dropped out of school to help. Without the basic skills to get a decent job, Taianui began selling homemade alcohol, which is illegal.

He knew he was going down the wrong path, but felt hopeless and unable to do anything about it...

"Everyone thinks I'm useless because I don't have a job, I didn't go to school... it hurts because I know it's the truth."
