Founder | Himalayan Stove Project
George Basch (aka “Curious George”) has circled the globe as an adventurer, explorer, photographer and a creative entrepreneurial businessman. He is the founder of the nonprofit Himalayan Stove Project, an organization dedicated to preserving the Himalayan environment and improving the health of the people living there. The project provides clean-burning, fuel-efficient cookstoves as replacements to traditional stoves or open-fire pits which cause unsafe levels of indoor air pollution and use excess fuel, and has, as of late 2017, delivered almost 5,000 stoves. Coupled with emergency Earthquake Relief work in 2015, his organization has impacted more than 40,000 people in Nepal since 2012.
