“Unlearn” is a monthly talk series that aims to create a safe space for us to come together as a community to unlearn exclusion and relearn social justice. The series is conceptualized and organized by the SEBS Anti-Harassment and Anti-Discrimination (SAHAD) Committee with the support of our stakeholders, including Budhanilkantha School and Friends of Budhanilkantha School (FOBS).
The series explores a range of topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion, bullying, bigotry, body shaming, discrimination and harassment, intersectionality, privilege, mental health, emotional intelligence, consent, etc and all such matters that are pertinent in fashioning a more just and inclusive educational space. These conversations either start with presentations from experts in the field, or involve panel discussions among experts. As such, SAHAD is always in the look-out for recommendations of experts who can lead these conversations.
The SEBS Social Justice Fund is a SAHAD initiative that will provide micro-grants to BNKS students to undertake actionable projects that advance justice, equity, inclusion, and diversity inside and outside the school. Its purpose is to support student-led initiatives against social injustices both at BNKS and in Nepal at-large.
Through the fund, we want to encourage BNKS students to be color-brave in addressing centuries’ old injustices, to realize the power they hold in shaping our society, and to actively partake in forging equitable solutions to injustices both at school and in the country. To receive funding, clubs and student groups must demonstrate how their proposed activities advance these values.
The application for the fund will open at the start of every school-year after prefectship and club memberships have been awarded, and will remain open until the end of January. Once awarded, the finalists will not only receive funding but also mentorship from SAHAD to plan and implement their proposed activities.
The fund will be managed and implemented by the SAHAD-Justice Fund committee, which will consist of a president, secretary, treasurer, a school liaison officer, two fundraisers, and a website/data manager.
We hope to raise USD 2,000-3,000 each year on a SEBS-excom-authorized bank account. The Justice Fund committee will ensure accountability and transparency of the funds raised and utilized, with periodic updates on student-led projects' overall status provided through newsletters and SEBS' website.
