SGI Young Women Inaugurate Leadership Training Groups
On May 17, 2009, some 3,500 Bharat (India) Soka Gakkai (BSG) young women gathered for leadership training meetings held at 159 venues in 45 cities. At one of the meetings, BSG Young Women's Leader Archana Sehgal shared her determination to learn how to win victory in life in her youth, and to bring joy and hope to more people.
On April 25, SGI-Denmark also launched a young women's leadership training group, while SGI-Poland inaugurated a similar group on May 31. The SGI-Poland young women leaders held one-on-one dialogues with members and engaged in Buddhist study, deepening their sense of mission toward creating lasting world peace. SGI-Brazil's young women also gathered on May 31 to study a letter sent from Nichiren to one of his young followers, Nanjo Tokimitsu.
