Ajit George

Chief Operating Officer

I am a passionate advocate for the transformative power of education. As Chief Operating Officer, I manage various fields of operation, including fundraising, communications, partnerships, strategic planning, mentorship, and career development. My responsibilities include expanding the organization’s donor base through grassroots channels, foundation support, and corporate partnerships in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. For four months out of the year, I work directly in the field in India.

I also work with affiliated programs in India, including the Indian Institute of Journalism & New Media—a graduate school of journalism dedicated to using high-quality journalism to combat systemic political corruption—and the Baldev Medical & Community Center that provides healthcare, housing, and community development for the surrounding 17 villages and a population of over 16,000. I consult for new and emerging non-profits, especially in the field of education and poverty alleviation.
