ETWI Study Buddy

Study Buddy is a unique program that bridges the gap between American college students and students residing in some of the world’s most impoverished areas. These children may be situated in diverse locations, ranging from the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, to the lush rainforests neighboring the Amazon River. In these challenging circumstances, where access to basic amenities such as electricity is scarce even at home and school, Study Buddy strives to make a significant impact. 

The program revolves around college students serving as mentors to these eager learners. Despite the geographical distance, the mentor students leverage technology to connect with their counterparts through video communication platforms like Zoom. This virtual interface allows for interactive and engaging sessions, enabling the mentor students to teach the learner students about computer usage and explore various subjects.

One of the primary goals of Study Buddy is to assist the learner students in discovering their passions in life. By engaging with mentor students who share similar interests, the learners receive guidance and encouragement to pursue their areas of interest. Whether it’s music, art, science, or any other field, the mentor students provide insights, resources, and support to nurture the learners’ curiosity and talents.

To ensure effective communication, each conversation between mentor and learner students is monitored by the respective school teacher. This ensures that the discussions remain productive and align with the educational objectives. Moreover, since the learner students may come from diverse linguistic backgrounds, the conversations can take place in multiple languages, including Spanish, English, and French, allowing for a more inclusive and accessible learning environment.

Study Buddy is not just about imparting knowledge but also fostering meaningful connections between students from different corners of the globe. It promotes cultural exchange, empathy, and a broader understanding of the world. Through this program, American college students gain a deeper appreciation for global issues and challenges, while the learner students benefit from the mentorship, guidance, and exposure to new ideas.

Study Buddy also provides college students to fulfill needed uplifting volunteer hours, the requirement of some of the scholarships and universities. As we are a nonprofit organization we can satisfy this need easily.
