As an NGO working with the United Nations, the SGI has been active in public education on peace and other issues as well as providing humanitarian assistance and promoting interfaith dialogue and cooperation. Such initiatives are developed according to local needs and priorities, and each independent SGI organization around the world undertakes activities and projects appropriate to its own culture and context.
The SGI’s activities in these areas are based on the following key elements deriving from Buddhist philosophy:
– Belief in the dignity of life
– The interconnectedness of all life
– Reflection, dialogue and nonviolence
In particular, the SGI and its members have been promoting a wide range of humanitarian activities over the years, taking advantage of its unique strengths and capabilities as a faith-based organization (FBO).
