SGI-Nicaragua Youth Celebrate "Day of the Teacher" with Community Activism

SGI-Nicaragua youth exchange with children with disabilities

On July 1, 75 SGI-Nicaragua youth met in Managua to discuss the importance of the mentor-disciple relationship and how to develop and maintain conviction and ensure ongoing personal development. Through dialogue, those attending renewed their spirit to strive for peace and prosperity in their country.

SGI-Nicaragua youth members have been active in environmental protection projects and exchanges with students at their schools. Also, SGI-Nicaragua's annual youth culture festival has been regularly attended by many SGI members and guests from Latin American countries.
