On May 17-20, 2006, SGI-Panama hosted a play for children at the SGI-Panama Culture Center in Panama. Representative youth members performed an original play based on SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's children's story, The Snow Country Prince, about a young boy and girl in a snow country fishing village who care for an injured swan while their sick father remains hospitalized in a distant town. Through their experience, the siblings learn to foster hope and compassion in their hearts. Some 2,000 attended the show, including many school children and teachers.
