The AWARE Foundation is a Charitable Trust registered in the UK on 3 July 2007 and formally launched on 27 June 2008.
Paul Kenyon, Journalist & Writer
Paul was a BBC investigative journalist and presenter on the Panorama programme for 25 years. He has investigated and reported on many injustices on a global basis.
Paul came to the attention of the Trustees through his Panorama programme on the use of Indian nationals in drug testing by elements of the global pharmaceutical industry. AWARE provided support to some of those who had apparently been harmed by these actions and established a relationship with Paul. This resulted in Paul’s agreement to become a Patron.
John Wright, Former Coach Of The India Cricket Team
John is a vastly experienced international figure in world cricket. His Test career as an opening batsman for New Zealand was followed by a five year assignment as Coach to the Indian national side – a period of some success.
His extensive time and travel throughout India mean that he has first hand knowledge of its social problems and his support and belief in AWARE is of great benefit to the Foundation.
