"The fruit of silence is prayer; the fruit of prayer is faith; the fruit of faith is love; the fruit of love is service; the fruit of service is peace."
— Mother Teresa
SERVICE and HUMANITARIAN ACTION
This is about humanity —– we are living things; we depend on each other. And that’s how we are going to build a global community where we care for each other and make this world a better place.
— Former Child Soldier and Rapper Emmanuel Jal
Peace Day provides individuals with an opportunity to build peace and a sense of our common humanity through volunteering and service as well as learning about humanitarian and environmental issues affecting communities close to home and across the world.
