Communities of Peace
Communities of Peace are the foundation for all Service For Peace programs, initiatives, partnerships, and volunteer activities. Our Communities of Peace are essentially our partner communities. It is our belief that community development should be an inclusive and long-term process that requires both internal and external support.
Service For Peace is founded on the notion that when people serve together for the greater good, then they develop greater understanding and trust; a growing sense of community. Communities of Peace are simply communities where an ethic of service prevails, where residents work together to address those needs that have been prioritized by the community. In each of the developing nations where SFP is active, our local staff members have identified specific communities where SFP will work with the residents to support projects that the community has identified as part of a long-term development plan.
