SGI Members in Mauritius Start Afresh
On June 28, in the island country of Mauritius located east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, SGI-Mauritius members gathered for their chapter meeting in a suburb of Port Louis, the country's capital. SGI President Daisaku Ikeda sent a congratulatory message and SGI-Africa Chief Tadashi Minai and SGI-Africa Advisor Takemi Sugai from France attended. New national leaders for the women's, young men's and young women's divisions were appointed. Participants also celebrated the organization's growth. SGI-Mauritius is now one chapter with five districts. Since the chapter's establishment in 1996, SGI-Mauritius members have engaged in grassroots dialogues and deepened friendships in their communities, based on their practice and the philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism.
