Nutrition First

A Peacemaking Project by Kiera D.

What is the injustice we are solving?

So many people struggle with eating disorders because they want to lose weight. Instead of eating healthy and exercising and drinking water, people, especially teenagers, stop eating and drinking and sleeping, which can lead to other issues such as depression and therefore problems with school and social experiences.

The role model of most teenagers today are the one psychologically promoting such unhealthy eating habits its believe being slim is what the society prefers

Hi Kiera--I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that we haven't forgotten about your mentor request! We're looking for someone with a background in eating disorders who can support your project. :) In the meantime, I'm happy to support your project however you need. Please let me know if you have any questions, or if you would like me to share any resources with you!

Hi Kiera,

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!

Hi Kiera,

Just checking in about your project and the next steps. I wanted to make sure you are aware of the upcoming Mini-Grant Deadline - there is still time to remain eligible to attend a Peace First Challenge Accelerator if you complete your Compassionate Insight, Project Plan, and Mini-Grant application by March 31st.

We're excited about your work, and would love to be able to support it with a mini-grant of up to $250.

These tools can help you craft your insight, plan, and budget for your mini-grant:

Through your dashboard you can submit your "compassionate insight," record your plan in "Make a plan" and then "Apply for a mini-grant" for the materials you need.

Let me know how I can help!

Hi Kiera!
Thanks so much for posting your project!
Can you share a bit more about what initial ideas you have to work on this project?
It would be great if you used our toolkit to help you refine the injustice you want to work on so that you can come up with a compassionate insight that will help you put a plan together. You can find the toolkit here:
We look forward to hearing more from you and to seeing how we can help you!
Have a great day!
