Rokas to receive the Global Community Innovators Award


Founded in 2014, Global Tassels is a 501(c)3 non profit that opens opportunities for students living in developing countries to get their college education. We currently work with countries such as Colombia, Haiti, India, Ivory Coast, and The Philippines. We are committed to select potential student leaders who will ultimately return to their home country to implement a project that will impact their communities. Global Tassels is an organization that supports the global movement and awareness efforts to eradicate poverty from 2015 and beyond. Our main commitment is to our students but we also partner and support community based organizations worldwide who are making significant impact in the lives of many.
The Annual Campaign Gala supports Global Tassels efforts to finance the cost of our Student-Leaders educational needs and our ability to remain active, visible, and productive in the countries we are working with.
