Rohan K. Abraham
Rohan started his career as a Chartered Accountant focusing on Risk Advisory and Operational Consulting. 11 years on, he decided it was time to shift the emphasis from large corporations and businesses to grass root organisations working to improve peoples’ lives. In 2011, he started PledgeBack with the intent of assisting other people make such contributions while continuing the normal course of their lives.
Apart from running PledgeBack, Rohan works with many non profit organisations in Southern India helping them improve their effectiveness and spread. He advises the Board of an organisation working to provide marginalised people with access to water, sanitation and energy and is also on the Board of an Australian organisation working to remove energy poverty in India.
Rohan has worked with large accounting firms such as Arthur Andersen, Ernst & Young and Grant Thornton and has experience in consulting with large corporations across the globe.
Rohan says, “PledgeBack aims to offer every individual and corporation the opportunity to assist non profit organisations in their work, by doing what they do best. Time is the most valuable commodity that you possess and we can help you connect with an organisation that fits your interests and maximises the benefit. Go out there and explore.”
