  1. To keep away from corruption and bribery.
  2. To avoid quarrels between familis and family members.
  3. To withdraw court cases concerning family differences.
  4. To support five students for their studies.
  5. To build tank for water storage in villages on community basis.
  6. To plant at least five fruit-bearing trees.
