One of the ways that Shinnyo-en practitioners put their teachings and wisdom into practice is through deep community partnerships and engagement. On July 15, the Shinnyo-en Lanka Preschool hosted its annual blood donation drive in Narahenpita, Sri Lanka. This is the 32nd year that the preschool operated by Shinnyo-en has hosted this event. Shinnyo-en Lanka Preschool, conceptualized by Shinnyo-en founder Shinjo Ito, opened in 1987 as a free preschool for three- to five-year olds.
