1. Compassion: All TASSEL family members –volunteers, local teachers as well as the children and villagers – are always reminded to provide compassion, love and understanding for one another. The hearts of those touched by compassion truly do transform others.


2 . Quality: TASSEL’s services are of high quality.  Local teachers and international volunteers are admitted only through a thorough application and interview process, and are trained rigorously. The English curriculum is sourced from high-quality, U.S.-based teaching methods.


3. Volunteer-based: All members, including officers and board members, are unsalaried.  The only exception are local Cambodian teachers who receive stipends.
