A descendent of the Noble Family DeGiorgio from Trento, Italy, dating back to the 17th century, it is recorded that 'Doctore Salvatore Di Giorgio' became a Professor at the University of Bologna in 1650.

Noble bearers of the name include Francesco Di Giorgio (1439-1502), an engineer, architect, painter, and sculptor who also constructed parts of the Ducal Palace at Urbino.

As an Engineering Generalist with a degree in mechanical engineering, H.G. the Duke, the oldest son of the late Count Salvatore DeGiorgio, started his career as an engineer in England, having held several senior executive positions in the heavy metal and electronic industry.

H.G. the Duke is a born motivator with proven abilities in all facets of engineering, combining expertise in engineering and a high level of management and design.
The family moved to Canada in 1965, settling in the west end of Toronto. Following the family tradition, H.G. the Duke took the opportunity to expand his horizons in the trading and shipping environment. He soon became known as the number one shipper to West Africa and the Mediterranean in Toronto. H.G. the Duke also served as President/Owner of a group of companies.

During travelling to third-world countries around the globe, it became H.G. the Duke's passion that "One Should Help All Those In Need" by providing food, clean drinking water, clothing, shelter, medicine and medi­cal equipment, and comfort to all human races.

Established as Compassionate Knights of various Orders of Chivalry and Knighthood, they bonded in fellowship to guide and coordinate their philanthropic, charitable endeavors. In 1986, as the Prior St. Aden and Knight Commander of The Sovereign Order of St John of Jerusalem - Knights of Malta, H.G. the Duke founded a charitable organization, "Journey of Hope," (with two other Knights of the Order) later to be known as "Knights Without Borders." "Knights Without Borders - Journey of Hope" continues the customs, traditions, duties, and responsibilities embodied in the ancient and honored Code of Chivalry and their perpetuation and promulgation in the modern world.

As Founder and Chairman, we have realized that the philosophy behind "Knights Without Borders" has also inspired many other charitable organizations.
