Founder Profile - Madan Mohan Prasad
My name is Madan Mohan Prasad and I am a founding member of the Mahatma Gandhi Canadian Foundation for World Peace in Edmonton, Canada. Currently, I am serving the Foundation as a member of the Board of Directors. The main reason I have been associated with the Gandhi Foundation is because I believe in Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of teaching non-violence, peace and love with human beings. Mahatma Gandhi has inspired me by his preaching to pay respect and love to poor and common people. I am a Canadian citizen and have earned a Master of Arts in English, a Bachelor of Law degree in India, and 3 years of apprenticeship trade certification in parts from advance education and manpower from the Government of Alberta. I have been serving many charitable and non-profit organizations in Edmonton and have served as President of the Hindu Society of Alberta in 1988 - 1989, General Secretary of the same society for 5 consecutive years, and as Secretary for the Society for Development in Third World Countries. Currently, I am a Vice-President with the Canadian Multicultural Education Foundation, General Secretary with Brookview Community League, immediate past President with the Shanti Niketan Society for Semi-retired and Seniors, and a delegate member of the Council of India Societies of Edmonton. I work, at present, as a Parts Expeditor in the Edmonton head office of Finning (Canada), the largest Caterpillar dealer in the world. I started my job with Caterpillar on October 4, 1971 and am still working full-time. I have two children, my daughter, Dr Shailly Prasad is a Chiropractor, and my son, Mr. Vivek Prasad, is an electronic Engineer, and my wife is a professional Accountant. I enjoy working with the Gandhi Foundation with people who believe in non-violence and peace.
