If had a chance to start my own nonprofit organization, I would open up an organization that would provide financial and emotional assistance to international students attending higher academic institutions in the USA and come from poor countries. Personally, I come from a country where people earn an equivalent of 200 American dollars a month on average and barely make ends meet every month.
Nowadays, more and more students from all over the world come to the USA to attend a university and gain knowledge in specific field that they are interested in because American education system is one of the best in the world currently and worldly recognized. Personally, see many students have financial problems because Of the increased cost Of living and unexpected circumstances going on in their home country.
International students usually don’t have any family members or relatives living in the USA that could support them, so they need to get by on their own. They are only allowed to work 20 hours a week on campus which allows them to make some extra money, but still not enough make a living Also, international students might experience culture shock and have trouble making friends in the beginning because of the language barrier.
Even though international students might do well in class, they may have poor pronunciation that prevents them from socializing and speaking up in class. Members of the organization would have a chance to donate money to keep the organization functioning, and help other international students to succeed in the LISA. One of the ways to help international students would be to pay for their books because we are all aware that books can be extremely expensive sometimes.
