Jai Jinendra. Happy New Year. I am honor to invite you to join us in the inaugural sessions of the summit being planned in Mumbai, Delhi, Paris and Washington DC by JAINA (Federation of Associations of Jains in North America). The summits are intended to develop a framework to bring together Jains globally and provide an institutional framework to eradicate some of the pressing problems amongst Jains and the communities they live in. Some of the areas identified are:
- Insuring every child has strong educational foundation right in the elementary school.
- Enriching the lives of physically/mentally challenged youngsters and their families.
- Develop individual skill base leading to temporary or to permanent employment in one of the Jain Industries / or open a small business of their own with micro grants and/ or loans from Jain organization(s).
- Initiate programs to reduce preventive diseases. (I.e. Diabetes, High Blood pressure, TB, Visual and Auditory impairments, etc...)
