Every other year, we send two female delegates to Japan as exchange students in compliance with a resolution adopted during the Third World Buddhist Women’s Convention held in Honolulu in June 1967. The stated aim of the resolution was “nurturing future leaders for Jodo Shinshu women’s activities through exposure to Buddhist culture in Japan, oriental culture and youth movement and as a mission of good will.”
In the years we don’t send delegates to Japan, we host Japanese delegates in Hawaii.
More information is included in the Student Exchange Program Information handout.
