    The appearance of experts

    I agree with the first activity of carefully researching violence and sexual abuse - this is necessary to start a series of future activities. At milestone number 2, the description of activities is at a non-specific level, all are planning intentions but I have not seen specific activities associated with high technology. Milestone number 2 plays the most important role among the milestones outlined by the author. In addition, I think there needs to be more people specializing in the social field to accurately advise on the proposed activities, specifically social experts on violence and sexual abuse to Assess the problem accurately, from there you will have the basis to make the right decisions and actions.

    Spending activity and duration

    It is clear that the author had very serious intentions when developing this proposal. If successful, the usefulness will be extremely great. Here I see:
    - The duration should be included at each milestone, to clearly demonstrate the author's professionalism.
    - There should be a more detailed explanation of small spending activities at each milestone, instead of just stating the amount and listing a number of things as currently.
    With the desire to contribute to better proposals, I always hope that the author carefully consults the above two opinions. Thank you.
