The San Antonio Express-News features Sikh philanthropist Gurvinder Pal Singh (otherwise known as G.P. Singh), of San Antonio, Texas:

“I have lived here for 34 years,” says Singh, who turned 60 on June 30. “My children were born here. They got educated here. I ran a business here. I employed over 400 people here. So, I am defined by San Antonio and I feel it’s my duty and frankly a privilege to give back to the community that has been so good to me. It really is a privilege to give back.”

The article discusses G.P. Singh’s role as Vice-Chairman on the Board of the San Antonio Area Foundation, which supports charitable causes in the San Antonio community. Read more about him and his work in the San Antonio Express News.

Further, in 2012, G.P. Singh delivered an engaging TEDx Talk in San Antonio, describing his life’s journey and how he applied concepts of the Sikh faith in his career. You can watch the video below:
