A Peacemaking Project by Colin R.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Cities with filled with poverty and sorrow, are that of crumbling architecture and filth described in this photo.

Hi Colin,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Good insight, Gavin! What do you think keeps this from happening right now?

Hi Colin, really interested to learn more about your project. What problems are you seeing in your city, specifically? We'd love to work with you to identify the root causes and find some solutions. It might be good to start by interviewing some people in your city -- neighbors, community leaders -- about what challenges they are seeing and what solutions there might be. This tool can help you with that:

Is there anything we can help with?

Hi there! Thanks for getting started on your project -- this sounds like an important issue to explore. I'm interested to hear a bit more about the injustice you've identified. Who do you think is impacted by this injustice?
Have you explored our peacemaking tools? The Choose and Understand tools might help as you continue to narrow down to specifics and get at the root of the problem.
