Remarkable efforts were made by members of the Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC) in 2016- 2017. Their grassroots efforts, carried out in more than 43 countries around the world, were inspired by diverse faith practices and a strong belief that every child is priceless in dignity and deserves to grow up safe and sound. GNRC members tackle a variety of issues that cause suffering for children, including poverty, injustice and exploitation. All of these issues are directly or indirectly linked to violence against children.

It was in February 1945, very near the end of World War II, that I had the great fortune to meet Rev. Kohei Miyamoto, whom Myochikai members revere as Daionshi, or great spiritual leader. Not long after, I began a new life with the Daionshi and his wife, Rev. Mitsu Miyamoto. At that time, they were poor and unknown ordinary people, but I was deeply impressed by their passion and devotion to the Buddhist faith.

The Daionshi was totally selfless, free from complaints and frustrations, and constantly exuded a deep gratitude for all things. During the severe bombing of Tokyo near the end of the war, he kept a lonely vigil at the head temple of the religious organization to which he belonged. Despite suffering burns in the explosions, he stayed there, risking his life to protect the spiritual treasures in the building. This kind of unwavering faith—and putting it into practice—is the essence of the spirit of Myochikai.

The Fourth Forum of the Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC) was held from 16th - 18th June 2012 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, under the theme of “Ending Poverty, Enriching Children: INSPIRE. ACT. CHANGE.” Four hundred and seventy (470) participants from 64 different countries around the world, including 49 children and young people, engaged in spirited discussions focused on what the world’s faith communities can do together to end child poverty.

The members of the GNRC Fourth Forum Organizing Committee, chaired by Dr. Mustafa Ali, wisely guided the preparations for the forum, and their excellent planning was put into action by the Local Hosting Committee, chaired by Sr. Jean Pruitt. Countless others are deserving of our profound gratitude for making the forum a success, not the least of which are the Fourth Forum Co-patrons H.E. Ambassador Dr. Salim Ahmed Salim and His Lordship Bishop Dr. Method Kilaini, the African Council of Religious Leaders, and the Forum Secretary General Abubakar Kabwogi. All of the staff and the wonderful volunteers worked very hard to ensure our time together in Dar es Salaam, the “Haven of Peace,” would lead to a wonderful outcome.
