ROSES OF PEACE
The Roses of Peace (ROP) Ambassador Programme is a signature effort by Roses of Peace to invest in the next generation of interfaith leaders and social influencers. Through this initiative Roses of Peace seeks to empower and enable passionate youths to spread the messages of peace, love, harmony and kindness among all races and religions in Singapore and shape a diverse and inclusive generation of community leaders.
