Local Action Global Change

A Peacemaking Project by Hailey G.

What is the injustice we are solving?

My project will solve economic and diverse differences in communities that are currently living under the poverty line and that don't have easy access to simple things like running water and shoes.

Hi Hailey,

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!

Best,
Adrian

Hi Hailey!

Thanks so much for posting this project. I love how you're thinking about how your local actions can have a ripple effect on the world around you.

One thing we encourage people to do at this stage in their projects is to take a deep dive into understanding the root causes of why the injustice they're focusing on occurs. We encourage you to talk to people who directly experience the injustice, people who cause the injustice, and people who are already working to address it. Here are some resources for how to do that: https://www.peacefirst.org/projects/test-project-3/dashboard/understand-injustice

I also wanted to let you know about an opportunity coming up soon. While you can create a project at any time to be eligible for a $250 mini-grant, if you submit your compassionate insight by February 28th, you can participate in the Peace First Challenge with other young people from around the country, and can apply to attend a spring Peace First Accelerator Conference!
