Summary

The INEB Institute is raising funds to sponsor two students to participate in its innovative School of English for Engaged Social Service (SENS) program for 2018. Based in Thailand, SENS trains young adults from Asia in the tools to take leadership for sustainability of the planet, of our societies, and of the human spirit. Our candidates are a young Muslim woman from Indonesia, and a young Buddhist woman from Myanmar. From diverse backgrounds, they will join hands in a common and urgent effort.

Challenge

The diverse communities of Asia face problems that are common to all of humanity in this era, though the local manifestations may differ. These problems are at root problems of sustainability--the planet is threatened by climate change and destruction of the environment. Our societies are threatened by inequality, violence, and a lack of broad participation. Our relationships are threatened by competition, distrust, and insecurity. We need leaders of integrity who will work for sustainability.

Solution

The INEB Institute, under the Sathirakoses Nagapradipa Foundation, designs and runs courses of transformative learning for young adults from Asia. The aim of these courses, including SENS, 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 resilient societies.

Long-Term Impact

We aim for learning that is both broad and deep. Based on experience we expect that the 2 women who will join our course of 18 students and trainees will begin a lifelong journey of confidently setting goals and working to achieve them. They in turn will impact their local communities and organizations upon their return. Some of our students have set up local courses modeled on ours. Others have led sessions on climate change in their home villages. Each chooses to lead in their own unique way.
