Challenge

The diverse communities of Asia face problems common to all of humanity, though local manifestations may differ. They are at root problems of sustainability--the planet is threatened by climate change and destruction of environments. Our societies are threatened by inequality, violence, and a lack of participation. Our relationships are threatened by competition, distrust, and insecurity. We need leaders of integrity who will work for the personal and social transformations needed in our time.

Solution

The School of English for Engaged Social Service (SENS), under the Sathirakoses Nagapradipa Foundation, runs courses of transformative learning for young adults from Asia. Our aim is to cultivate awareness of the roots of our ecological, social, and interpersonal problems, and to support our students to develop the skills of self-understanding, communication, listening, mutual support, and mindful leadership that will allow us to overcome divisions and work towards peaceful, resilient societies.

Long-Term Impact

Meeting the challenges of our time will require leadership from every sector of society. We train Asian young adults who demonstrate a readiness to work for a safe and abundant future for all. Many are from marginalized communities and lack the resources to attend a quality personalized program like SENS. Your donation to the SENS Scholarship Fund enables worthy students to begin a lifelong journey of setting goals, working together to achieve them, and making a benign impact on their societies.
