Hi Wadi!
Thanks so much for posting this project.

As part of the Peace First project-making process, we give formal feedback on your compassionate insight. Once your insight is all set, then you can move forward with your mini-grant application if you need funds to help move your idea into action!

I want to give you feedback on your insight:
"To solve this injustice of
Gender equality, illiteracy and conflicts

It is great that you are deciding to take action to solve a number of injustices that you have identified. We find that it usually helps to start by focusing on a particular aspect of a particular injustice and then grow from there.
Do you have some initial thoughts on where you want to start or are these projects all running already? It does sound like you have a good idea of the root cause that you want to address. It would be great to share a bit more about the solution as part of your insight so that we can understand a bit better your approach.
We would love to find ways to support your work.
Have a great day!
Raul

Hi Wadi!

We're excited to hear more about your ideas to address this important injustice! I wanted to let you know about an opportunity -- if you are interested in getting some funding for materials that you need to carry out your project, you can apply for a mini-grant of up to $250.

The deadline to submit your Project Plan and Mini-Grant Application is March 31st if you want to remain eligible to apply to attend a Peace First Accelerator.

As you craft your plan, be sure to consider the feedback we gave you on your compassionate insight, and check out our project planning tools for help turning your insight into a concrete action plan: https://www.peacefirst.org/plan-your-project

Then, through your dashboard, you can make any changes you want to make to your "compassionate insight," record your plan in "Make a plan" and then "Apply for a mini-grant" for the materials you need.

Let us know if you have questions. We're looking forward to supporting your project!
