Thanks for posting your project, Bakish!

As part of the process of completing peacemaking projects, Peace First staff give formal feedback on important steps of the project. One of those steps is the compassionate insight.

I enjoyed reading your project and what are trying to achieve! My understanding from what I read is that you are trying to provide children with special needs, the one who's left out and hard to reach with an early education, right?

It would be great to try to make your insight as clear as you can, so that other Peace First members would understand it better! You can use the compassionate tool here: https://www.peacefirst.org/resource/understand-4-compassionate-insight, which will help you in re-writing your compassionate insight.

We would also encourage everyone who is at this stage of their project to work towards deepening their understanding of the injustice they're focusing on. Thus, it would be great to 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

You would need to get started now to be eligible for a mini-grant. Thanks again for sharing your project with Peace First members, and we are looking forward to your next steps of the project!

Please let us know if you need any help with this!

Hi Bakish!

Thanks for sharing this project with us. This is really important, and I'm glad you're working on this! It seems like you've hit upon two important injustices -- the lack of availability of early childhood education (which children need to succeed!) and the lack of respect for individual differences (especially for students with special needs, who often don't have access to the education they need!).

I'm wondering how exactly your project addresses this need -- do you provide early education directly, or do you raise awareness among adults? Both are important. It seems like dialogue is an important part of your work, which is great to hear.

And a final question -- how can we help?

Respecting the individuality is a key to the problem solving of early age education.
