Hi Aleatanu,

Welcome to Peace First--we're excited you've joined us! There are lots of ways to get started with creating positive change. This community will give you tools and relationships to help you get started and then see a project through. We can't wait to build with you!

You have a great idea for a project already—I love that you’re already connecting gender inequality with poverty. They’re certainly two issues which feed into each other, and it’s import to understand how they connect. I can also see by your title that you’re already identifying entrepreneurship as a solution, which is great—it’s a very constructive way to not just help people, but give them the tools to continue helping themselves. I can’t wait to see where you take this! As you continue with your project, we’ll be here to provide feedback and help in any way we can.

One more thing: Can you help out another peacemaker by checking out their project and adding your thoughts? It's a great way to get to know other people and to share ideas. Here's one project you might be interested in: https://www.peacefirst.org/project/stop-gender-violence-kayole

Please let me know if you have any questions! I'm looking forward to hearing from you. :)
