As a free web application, Belouga offers a direct pathway for students to learn through their peers all over the world.
Belouga provides a platform for students to help schools around the world get materials and supplies that they need.
Belouga leads the Global Education initiative by linking classrooms all over the world and teaches students about culture, teamwork, and empathy.
Teachers and students are able to create profiles to showcase their classroom and culture to the world.
Classes are able to search and connect with other classrooms around the world based on age, location and demographic.
Once connected, students in both classes are paired with a partner to provide a 1:1 personal learning experience through curriculum questions that give students an inside look at how other students are living both in and out of the classroom.
Classrooms earn points and badges for all engagement between their students and partner classes.
Points are accumulated and able to be donated by each class to different impact campaigns that look to benefit under resourced schools around the world.
