Robert “Bobby” Sager is an American philanthropist and photographer, best known for founding the Sager Family Traveling Foundation and Roadshow, a charitable organization.
Few people cut a more colorful, dynamic swath of impact across the globe than entrepreneur turned full-time philanthropist Bobby Sager.
In the words of Sting, Bobby’s frequent travelmate since they met in a Brazilian bar years back, Bobby is “a big brash guy from Boston…an old Nepal hand, flamboyant eccentric, inexhaustible world traveler, and practical philanthropist.”
It is a description well-earned. A tough-minded businessman who made a fortune by following his passion, Sager has spent the last decade of his life traveling around the globe giving away his money and using his entrepreneurial and street smarts to make whatever difference he can – in some of the worst areas on the planet. His is a life of extremes. On any given day you might find Bobby living in a tent in Karachi, sharing a toilet with 40 monks in the Himalayas, working alongside President Kagame in Rwanda, or discussing science education with the Dalai Lama in India.
