Having seen and lived the awful effects of poverty in the Philippines, Dr. Elvin T. Ramos realized that there were few educational or job opportunities for young people in that country. Despite family’s encouragement to attend college, there were few dispositions and resources for young individuals to achieve their career and professional goals. Much of this came from the lack of financial support and the development of the individual.
In 2014, Dr. Ramos envisioned an opportunity to create an organization that would combine his passion for education and interest in world development that would eventually culminate in the founding of Global Tassels. Around the same time, the United Nations was developing the 2015-2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to eradicate global poverty. Global Tassels, therefore, aligned its mission and its vision to be part of that campaign that shook new ideas of entrepreneurs, novice humanitarians, philanthropists, and more to be part of the campaign to eradicate global poverty.
