On and around November 18, 2007, SGI members throughout the world gathered to celebrate Soka Gakkai's founding day (November 18, 1930) in their respective locales.

On November 17, SGI-Nepal held its 13th general meeting at the SGI-Nepal Peace Center in Kathmandu. Three new districts were announced and members made a fresh departure toward 2008, which the SGI has designated the "Year of Capable People and Development." Devendra Man Singh, Sita Lama and Sunita Jimba related experiences of how their practice of Nichiren Buddhism has positively impacted their daily lives. SGI-Nepal General Director Sahana Shrestha called on the participants to further advance in unity.
