Programmes aimed at helping young people are struggling financially, just when they're needed more than ever. The Graeme Dingle Foundation has been creating schemes, like Kiwi Can which support 27, 000 tamarki  in 40 communities,  but this year 40 per cent of their funding has been lost. Kathryn Ryan talks to Jo-anne Wilkinson, co-founder of the Foundation, and Paula Faitala, principal of Mercer School in Waikato which runs one of the Foundation's programmes.
