Dear Friends:

As Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” At Global Tassels, we are committed to using education to change the world and end the cycle of poverty. We aim to provide quality education to students and prepare them to help their communities after graduating in their desired field. We hope that training these future student leaders to be engaged within their communities will bring about change and improvements to end poverty in their nation, so that they ultimately can live up to their highest potentials.

As outlined in our mission, Global Tassels is committed to providing educational opportunities to community-minded young people in the effort to end poverty. Part of Global Tassels’s Project AIR, we will be airlifting students from all over the world and place them in our partner institutions tuition-free. This is in an effort create a network of change agents around the world, we are partnering with educational institutions, the government sector, businesses, community leaders and advisors to train our Student-Leaders to bring about sustainable change to their respective countries.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions:

Kyle Alvarez

Acting Vice President of Global Recruitment
