On July 24, SGI-Paraguay youth members held a meeting at the SGI-Paraguay Culture Center in Asunción to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Soka Gakkai's youth group which was formed in 1951. Such meetings were held throughout the country in July.

The meeting in Asunción included discussions based on SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's essay series "Our Brilliant Path To Victory." Youth leaders Samuel Medina and Chieko Nagasawa shared their belief that the future peace and security of their country depends upon the efforts of the youth.
