Very strong youths willing to save the little they earn from their sales can make a difference. Otherwise more students are forced out from Grades 10 and 12 each year and the streets of PNG get worse with anti social behaviour.

Last year there were 25,860 Grade 12s competing for 4,700 tertiary institution places and the bulk of them went home. Many ended up on the streets looking for fast cash. How can this problem be solved with the introduction of tuition fee free education, overcrowded classrooms and insufficient tertiary places?

A sad and true scenario of what our current young school dropouts turn in to after failing to secure a place in our tertiary institutions. Inspite of many who take this as a quick money making job and the negetivities associated with this habit some kids went on to become successful bussinessmen and property owners in their later life. I know many small businessmen who basically started off as street sellers.

Certainly a word picture of the futility of life afforded many of today's PNG sons and daughters.
