Who We Are

A few of us

 

Here’s a few of us at our Blackjack Spectacular!

 

 

Mission: Team Tassy accompanies families in Haiti our of poverty through good, dignified jobs.

 

 

Vision: We envision a world where poverty does not exist

 

Core Values:

WE CELEBRATE THE INHERENT POWER IN EVERY PERSON

Every individual has potential.  By standing beside the people we serve, working to remove barriers to their success, and providing necessary resources to help them work towards sustainability, we restore human dignity.

WE WORK WITHOUT FEAR

We are fearless both in our decisionmaking and in the places and people we serve.  We don’t hesitate.

WE KEEP IT SIMPLE

By keeping our vision simple, our mission will always remain clear and actionable.

WE DO WHATEVER IT TAKES

Dignity is a human right.  We treat the people we serve the same way we’d treat our own families.

WE GIVE AND WORK WITH JOY

The attitude with which we give and work is as important as the amount of time or money given.  We approach it with reckless abandon.

WE FINISH THE JOB

We break cycles of poverty by defining and treating root causes with those we serve, whether that takes us 10 days or 10 years.
