Johannes Maier, founding member, born in 1963, works in Frankfurt as an economist and asset allocator for one of the leading banks in Germany. On his first trip to India, he was impressed by the culture and development potential of the country, but also by the deep poverty of many of its people. The lack of future prospects for India’s deprived children moved him to co-found "Aashita" and serve on its board.
