Gurbaksh Chahal | All I want for my birthday is…

To Pay it forward. Every year the Chahal Foundation picks an important cause to support. During my last trip to India, I had learned that schoolgirls face profound disadvantages and drop out of school early at a disproportionate rate.   We asked ourselves, how could we find an effective way to help keep girls in school […]

Gurbaksh Chahal | The Many Ways You Can Make a Difference

Gurbaksh Chahal targeted the bigger issues: eradicating sex trafficking, improving third-world education, and raising awareness of cultural issues have been the targets of The Chahal Foundation since its creation.

Gurbaksh Chahal | Don’t Hesitate to Bring Good Change

The amount of suffering in this world is unimaginable, and children (and with them our future) are the most vulnerable victims of crime and outright atrocity. In this day and age, child labor, child sex trafficking and abuse still are the gruesome reality of too many countries. These children are robbed of their childhood and, […]

Gurbaksh Chahal | Let’s Make Our Kids Smile

Gurbaksh Chahal | No Chris Brown, My Father Is Not a Terrorist

Hate isn’t something we understand when we’re born; it’s something we’re taught. Even the 2012 presidential election exposed the country to weakness by calling into question ethics, character and abilities. It’s embarrassing to realize some even questioned the birthplace and religion of our sitting president as even a topic. And on Election Day, instead of […]

What Gurbaksh Chahal Learned Starting a Foundation

To achieve success, you have to go through an incredible journey of ups and downs. And once you do, you feel humbled. I’ve realized the beauty of the American Dream is that once you’ve seen it, you start to think about ways to give back. I’ve been fortunate to be part of three successful entrepreneurial […]
