Challenge

Unemployment has a toxic and devastating impact on a young persons life. It can lead to hunger, homelessness, physical and severe mental health issues, all of which leave young people at high risk of exploitation and abuse.

Solution

From something as simple as a replacement birth certificate to a pair of shoes or a one month travel pass, the Thrive in Work fund removes the financial & psychological barriers preventing disadvantaged young people get into work. We directly connect disadvantaged young people with ethical employers who can offer meaningful, sustainable, paid experiance. This opportunity positively impacts their self confidence, mental and physical wellbeing and their entire future.

Long-Term Impact

If one young person can be uplifted out of poverty, it has a positive impact on their children, their community and society as a whole. It is an empowering gift to give a young person the means to earn and own their future.
