Mayra, thanks for the update! It would be great if you could share your compassionate insight with the Peace First members. Also, do you have a team of young people between the age of 13-24 that will support in implementing the project?
I would encourage you to use the peacemaking tools: https://www.peacefirst.org/peacemaking-tools These tools can help you understand the injustice better by submitting a compassionate insight and create a plan to address it, then you can apply for a mini-grant of up to $250 to carry out your project.
Please let us know how can we help.
I would like to be supported by PEACE FIRST to continue the work that I started one year ago with my organization.
Welcome to Peace First community, Mayra! We glad that you joined the platform. What is the name of the organization that you are working with? Please, share the link? I noticed that the injustice that you care about is violence, do you have a project that you would like to share with Peace First Community? Please let us know how can we help.
Hi Amani. The name of my project is "CADENA CHI CAWEEX", it means breaking chains in Ticuna language. Ticuna is a indigenist group from the Amazonia and we decided that name as a part of our identificacion.
With our youth organization we are working to prevent human trafficking in Peru. Because my city is a focal point to capture victims for sexual exploitation or other kind of exploitation.
You can watch some of our activities on facebook:

Hi Mayra, thanks for sharing more information about your project! I would encourage you to create the project and share the updates on what you have been doing. Please let us know how can we help you.
Hi Amani. The next saturday, I mean saturday 10, we are going to make a training about human trafficking through social networks with some experts from NGOs and the Police station. The activity is hosted by our organization. Maybe I can share the phtographs of the activity. As a detail the activity is with our own money, actually with the support of our parents. For that reason it would be great if Peace first can contribute with the 250 dollars. Also we need more training in planification.
