The injustices of poverty
A Peacemaking Project by Arrey T.
What is the injustice we are solving?
My research will help people to realize that despite the unfair circumstances poverty brings along, we can elevate our selves and remedy the outcomes

Thanks so much for sharing your project. Getting started is sometimes the hardest step when moving to address injustices that you want to solve in your community. What you have shared already shows me that you have a good understanding of what you want to work on and how you want to address the injustice you have identified. I'd love to learn more. We are here to help!
I look forward to hearing more.

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 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!

UBI is a form of social security where the government provides every citizen with monthly cash payments, no strings attached, completely unconditionally, to cover the basic expenses. UBIshould be between $2,000 and $3,000 per month enough money to keep every citizen in the US above the poverty line.
The concept is actually known you. In 1795, Thomas Paine, one of America's founding fathers wrote about the need for basic income and his pamphlet Agrarian Justice.
It has been experimented in several countries and even in the US and Canada since then, however, more experiments need to be done and for longer periods of time.
Hopefully this is something that can help or at least open your mind to research about it as 1 possible solution to eliminate poverty in the world.
