This Community Service Project is based on the philosophy that peace begins in the Family, in the Home and in the Community. The 4th Object of Rotary is to promote world peace, to meet the objective, we need to survey our own communities and seek areas where we can assist our Government and local Community Service organizations in making our communities peaceful and safe. By growing the number of peaceful communities for our citizens to live in, we can gradually make a difference in causing peace and harmony in our world.
