TASSEL Hope College

TASSEL is a non-profit organization focused on changing the lives of rural Cambodians through English education, teaching job creation, food and medicine aid, and sponsorships.

Cambodia still has not recovered from the the trauma brought on by the Khmer Rouge, a brutal regime that took hold over Cambodia during 1970s. 90% of teachers and doctors were killed during that time. Although socioeconomic progress is being made, Cambodia remains one the of the poorest nations in the world. A key bottleneck in this country is the lack of schools and teachers and the ability for students to learn English. Universities depend on English language textbooks but most cannot fully comprehend them. Providing free English education to children in rural areas allows them to access higher education and lift Cambodia out of poverty. TASSEL also provides food and medical aid to the poorest children and families with no able wage earners. The organization is built on a foundation of service and community, impacting the hearts of students, teachers, and volunteers alike.

At Hope College, we have established the TASSEL chapter and have been actively teaching Cambodian kids English. To sustain our mission of providing free education for them, we are in need of more funds to pay for local teachers, WIFI, technology, and infrastructure. Please consider donating to our cause! Thank you so much!
