Sometimes life gets in the way of learning.
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 his family. This meant he wasn’t able to develop foundational literacy and numeracy skills that could lead to securing a better job.
"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."
Taianui isn't alone.
