Hi! My name is Meredith Hamilton, and I'm the Chief Operating Officer at Peace First. Thank you so much for joining the Peace First Challenge! Your project looks​ really​ thoughtful and exciting! And really ambitious! Your insight seems to make the connection that someone with special needs is unable to get the education they need to obtain a full-time job. Is this the link you're making? Or is it more about the opportunity to find work than the lack of education? Or both? I'm curious if you were able to talk to both people who are finding it hard to get a job as well as potential future employers? This is a complex issue, and I'm excited to see what you do next!

Hello Ms. Hamilton,

&nbsp;

Thank you for  your comments. I am both trying to make the connection that those with special needs are unable to get the education they need for a full time job as well as the opportunity to find work than the lack of education. This is certainly a complex issue and thus I am working tirelessly to create a solution to best help those who are struggling with poverty. Thank you again for exploring The Elevator Project!
