About Us

The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (tGELF) is a program initiative of The Nand & Jeet Khemka Foundation. tGELF was founded in 2006, and was officially inaugurated in 2008 by the then Prime Minister of India, Dr Manmohan Singh.

tGELF’s vision is to nurture young ethical leaders that will be future agents of change. We believe that the world needs to redefine great leadership to encompass critical values that are key to meeting the challenges of the 21st century head-on. We believe that great leadership is not about money, power, or fame, but rather a deep sense of ethics, altruism and strong leadership capabilities including a bias for action. We want to see the world measure great leadership against the likes of Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr.
