CADENA CHI CAWEEX

A Peacemaking Project by Mayra V.

What is the injustice we are solving?

CADENA CHI CAWEEX, that in Ticuna language it means breaking chains, is a youth organization in the Amazonia of Peru. WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT WE CAN BE PART OF THE SOLUTION TO ELIMINATE HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN IQUITOS - PERU. Because as young people we understand that we can contribute with big changes in our society and break the chains of slavery, because human trafficking is the modern slavery and humans deserve respect, dignity and Human rights!

Hi Mayra, any updates on your project, please? Human Trafficking is a very important issue to tackle. Do you have a deep understanding of how to solve this issue?

We would encourage everyone who is at this stage of their project to work towards deepening their understanding of the injustice they are focusing on. It would be great to talk to other people in your community and try to understand their perspective of Human Trafficking or other people who are trying to solve the same justice or/and people who are already working to solve this injustice.
Also, use the problem and solution tree to discover the root causes and consequences of your chosen injustice and it will guide you to more solutions. Here are some resources on how to do that: https://www.peacefirst.org/understand-through-compassion

Please let us know how can we help.

Hi Amani, yes I have good news.
As organization CADENA CHI CAWEEX, we did our first activity of the year to raise awareness about seduction through social networks as a form of kidnapping in human trafficking.
We had the participation of the boss from police station about human trafficking and the CEO from an NGO that works to prevent this issue.

Mayra, these updates are great! Congratulation on the achievements so far and thanks for sharing! I liked that you were able to engage some stakeholder such as the police station and other NGO; this is a great example of collaboration.

I would encourage you to write your compassionate insight and try to make it as clear as possible so other Peace First members would understand it better, please. Here are some resources on how to do that: https://www.peacefirst.org/understand-through-compassion

Please let us know how can we help :)
