Relief and disaster management during the deadly earthquake in Nepal in 2015
After the deadly earthquake in 2015 people were homeless, displaced and in utter shock and confusion due to loss if their dear ones and  the destruction of their houses. It was totally a sad and very difficult phase for the Nepali people. Akkal too was very shocked at the same time  he wanted to help the victims. With this Mission Akkal got his
Volunteers to the 14 most affected areas of the earthquake. He provided the victims with food, blankets, medicines a d other necessary supplies. The victims with trauma spytoms were given counselling. This helped the victims to bring sense and courage in their next plan of action.

Akkal was awarded with Volunteer of the year award by USA in 2016 May and in October  USA awarded him for his outstanding and eexemplary humatarian work.
Path to success:  This training program sponsored by Germany deals with good governance.  Akkal explains abut this program
 He and his volunteers were taught that even for small matters you  could to plan to achieve success. For an example  if you plan and be cautious you can successfully walk along the small trails of the village.
In the event of conversation with Akkal he feels that he has not done enough in this field of social work. He says he has been doing social work as instructed by the INGOs. He now wants to identify areas of work himself and implement such works.
The education sector: After the earthquake the Government started building schools rapidly. These school have limited rooms not adequate for the increasing number of students. Akkal has so far built classes in 4 schools in the districts of Solukhumbhu and Tanahau. Akkal.has also providing financial assistance to 22 poor students studying in the districts of Gorkha, Solukhumbhu and Tanahau.
Gunisses World Record: This was done under the campaign of Buddha was born in Nepal.  A total of 70,000 people gathered in the open ground of Tundikhel and read the Holy scriptures of the Buddhists in one voice together in complete harmony. Since this record was done in a national level the award will be conferred to him by the Prime Minister and the President of Nepal.
The importance of volunteers:
According to the views of  Akkal volunteers are required for the development of Nepal. He cites an example of South Korea as an living example. South Korea was a very poor country 47 years back, in fact poorer than Nepal. The South Koreans build up a network of volunteers all over Korea. With the help of these volunteers South Korea developed so rapidly that today it stands as one the most developed countries in Asia.
Akkal wants to follow this pattern for the development of remote villages in Nepal.
He further states that a particular fund given to an NGO for development is distributed at about 3 to 4 levels and then only the fund is utilized for the actual project. Which means a literal example of Rs 5 crorer given to a NGO for development . When it first reaches the final destination Rs 3 crorer is only left for the project. Rs 2 crorer goes into the pockets of the NGO, the local NGO in the village, different committes and the contractors.
Akkal with his team of volunteers do the work themselves in the villages which the aided amount to be utilized 100%.
