Outside India, the United States (Jainism in the United States), United Kingdom (Jainism in Europe), Canada (Jainism in Canada), and East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda) have large Jain communities. The first Jain temple to be built outside India was constructed and consecrated in the 1960s in Mombasa, Kenya by the local Gujarati Jain community, although Jainism in the West mostly came about after the Oswal and Jain diaspora spread to the West in the late 1970s and 1980s. Jainism is presently a strong faith in the United States, and several dozen Jain temples have been built there, primarily by the Gujarati community. American Jainism accommodates all the sects. Smaller Jain communities exist in Nepal, South Africa, Japan (Jainism in Japan), Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Fiji, and Suriname. In Belgium (Jainism in Europe), the very successful Indian diamond community in Antwerp, almost all of whom are Jain, opened the largest Jain temple outside India in 2010, to strengthen Jain values in and across Western Europe. * In one sense, ''Latin America'' refers to territories in America where the Spanish or Portuguese languages prevail: Mexico, most of Central and South America, and in the Caribbean, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico — in summary, Hispanic America and Brazil. ''Latin America'' is, therefore, defined as all those parts of the Americas that were once part of the Spanish and Portuguese Empires.

'''Suriname''' ( ), is a country on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered (Borders of Suriname) by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south.

Suriname was colonized by the English and the Dutch (Dutch Republic) in the 17th century. In 1667 it was captured by the Dutch, who governed Suriname as Dutch Guiana (Surinam (Dutch colony)) until 1954. At that time it was designated as one of the constituent countries (constituent country) of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, next to the Netherlands and the Netherlands Antilles (dissolved (dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles) in 2010). On 25 November 1975, the country of Suriname (Suriname (Kingdom of the Netherlands)) left the Kingdom of the Netherlands to become independent (independence). A member of CARICOM (Caribbean Community), it is considered to be a culturally Caribbean country and has extensive trade and cultural exchange with the Caribbean nations.

At just under , Suriname is the smallest sovereign state in South America. (French Guiana, while less extensive and populous, is an overseas department of France.) Suriname has a population of approximately 566,000, most of whom live on the country's north coast, where the capital Paramaribo is located. Suriname is a mostly Dutch (Dutch language)-speaking country; Sranang (Sranan Tongo), an English (English language)-based creole language (English creole), is a widely used ''lingua franca''. It is the only independent entity in the Americas where Dutch is spoken by a majority of the population.
