The GHF Board of Directors
GHF Founder, Karl Amadé, PhD
GHF has been set up and is headed by Karl Amadé together with the board and is supported by the Friends of GHF. Karl, a Sinologist, has started and run a number of companies doing business in China. When he accidentally came across John Grahams book “On the Edge” he was so impressed that he sought contact with the author, out of which a precious friendship developed which in turn has led him to form GHF in the fall of 2017, seeking to spread John Grahams and Ann Medlocks Giraffe-Project in Europe. Karl understands his role as that of a facilitator: those people attracted by the idea of the Giraffe Heroes Project have to be brought together, interactive platforms need to be formed and impact has to be created.
