SGI-Panama Women and Young Women Meet
On August 2 and 3, 2008, SGI-Panama women and young women gathered for their first combined meeting in Chitré. Some 40 members from Panama City, Colón, Herrera, Chiriquí and Bocas del Toro attended.
Referencing the example of Kaneko Ikeda, wife of SGI President Daisaku Ikeda, participants discussed the importance of each individual taking the initiative to challenge her own personal growth and of creating truly happy lives through confidently fulfilling her purpose in living.
Mr. Ikeda sent a congratulatory message in which he encouraged everyone to build a "great castle brimming with happiness and glory" through harmonious relationships based on a spirit of personal responsibility and appreciating diversity.
SGI-Panama Women's Leader Dalys Moreno encouraged everyone to use their practice and sense of purpose to win in their daily lives. SGI-Panama General Director Gabriel Martínez Garcés urged the women to continue to foster capable youth who will realize peace and prosperity in Panama.
