Abraham George

Founder, The George Foundation (TGF)

Following a 25-year career in international business, George founded TGF to improve the welfare of economically and socially disadvantaged people. George’s interest in democracy led him to create the Indian Institute of Journalism & New Media, while his focus on environmental health drove him to an instrumental role in the removal of lead from gasoline in India. His most recent book “India Untouched: The forgotten face of rural poverty,” is based on his initial 10 years of experience working in rural areas of Tamil Nadu.
