In 2003, the first PAN IIT alumni conference was held in Silicon Valley, CA where Bill Gates, the keynote speaker recognized the alumni of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) as one of the leaders in innovation and technology globally. The event was covered by CBS in its famed “60 minutes” series by correspondent Lesley Stahl, making PAN IIT a household name in the United States. During the planning phase of “Give back to America” project in 2009, it was realized that a not for profit organization must be formed to distinguish from the mission of PAN IIT Alumni Foundation, giving rise to WHEELS Global Foundation (WGF). In 2013, WGF was founded as an independent 501c3 to provide innovative technology driven solutions to the challenges that affect the global rural population in six areas; Water, Healthcare, Energy, Education, Lifestyle and Sustainability. The organization partners with other national and international NGO’s and non-profit organizations, working in collaboration to provide assistance to a larger rural population globally. Our goal is to increase access, communication, and funding for technologies and/or charitable missions aimed at improving the living conditions of citizens across the globe through the implementation of sustainable programs.

Mission: "Technology Enabled Philanthropy" to give back to India, USA and to global communities by providing technological solutions to issues related with WHEELS six tracks - 'W'ater, 'H'ealth, 'E'nergy, 'E'ducation, 'L'ifestyles, and 'S'ustainability.

Around the world, providing quality and affordable healthcare remains a challenge. As the COVID-19 pandemic began, it quickly became apparent that public policy and current healthcare systems were ill-prepared to deal with the challenges. Ambassador Pradeep Kapur and Dr. Joseph Chalil discuss the lessons learned in the book, Beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic: Envisioning a Better World by Transforming the Future of Healthcare.

The authors offer sustainable and revolutionary solutions to change healthcare delivery in the United States and a model for other countries. With a combination of a public SafetyNet and free-market competition, they offer their "Grand Plan." The advances and adoption of current and new technology will revolutionize the field of healthcare. They offer critical strategies that countries can adopt during natural disasters, wars, or a pandemic.

The Emerging world order, as envisioned by the authors, addresses healthcare needs, education, and sustainable lifestyle choices, reducing the need for more intensive and costly interventions to improve the overall quality of life. Beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic: Envisioning a Better World by Transforming the Future of Healthcare does not stop with a plan for the United States healthcare system, but also organizations, such as the United Nations and the WHO, which are not living up to their initial promise. The authors suggest a roadmap that goes beyond just reform.

With these lessons and their Grand Plan, Ambassador Kapur and Dr. Chalil challenge the world to have the political consensus to create meaningful change for all, both in the United States, the United Nations, and around the globe.
