Bharat Lall, MD is an Indian-American hotelier and the CEO and President of Pinnacle Hotels USA. In recognition of his heritage, Bharat Lall is a proud supporter of Indian-American initiatives and is a donor at BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha.

Founded by influential Indian social worker Bhagwan Swaminarayan, BAPS is a non-profit spiritual volunteer group that is committed to making a better society by instilling the ideals of the Hindu faith, such as unity and altruism, amongst individuals. In keeping with its thrust towards selfless service, BAPS leads a wide range of humanitarian services that provide for several things including education, health, and rural development.

By engaging in rural development activities, BAPS has been helping out various rural communities in improving the quality of its members’ lives. An important aspect of rural development is the development of the agriculture sector, providing farmers the needed education to improve their crops through modern farming techniques and various techniques of water conservation. BAPS also works with the education sector in order to bring vocational skills training to primary and secondary education in order to promote independence at the grassroots level. Moreover, easier access to healthcare is also a prime concern that is being addressed.
