“Yes, I’m blind. And I’m a human being too.”

THE PYRAMID OF B人BEL

B人BEL’s main goal is to create a more equal and inclusive society, in which all people are respected as people, and everyone can have a life of opportunities and dignity. We want everyone to see the humanity in all people, regardless of their identity, ethnicity, gender, special needs, sexual orientation, or background.

We believe education to be the basis of creating a more inclusive future. Education should not be about feeding someone information: education should primarily focus on the person’s development. 

 

 

People are easily dehumanized based on their origins, gender, religion, skin color, background, sexual orientation, or anything else. But people are people. We want everyone to be treated and respected as a person.

We offer education programs to students from different ages and different background. All programs focus on self-understanding, expression, empowerment, and inclusion.

Learning isn’t limited to students: we organize accessible events and workshops for adults in which they can explore different ways of self-expression and discuss social issues.

In order to create more equality globally, it is important to connect people and create mutual understanding. Therefore, we bring visibility to different people and lives through stories, articles, videos, podcasts, and art.

B-what-BEL?

B人BEL focuses on people. We have a global goal, but our organization is based in Shanghai, China. That’s why, we use the Chinese character for ‘person’ (人), instead of an A, when we write B人BEL.

The tower of Babel is a myth about people who built a tower to heaven which fell down again, because they were unable to speak the same language. B人BEL brings people together to communicate, because we build a better society through communication and mutual understanding. And we are not building a tower, we are building a pyramid, because pyramids don’t fall
