In the time since we started AkarakA we have gone from strength to strength and we now have 157 young people in college and vocational training institutions who would not otherwise have had an opportunity to receive a higher education. We would like to thank everyone for their financial support; it is you who have made their dreams for a better life a reality.
Over the next year there are several new initiatives underway. We have the graduation of our first scholars in Manila in 2013. We have also recently expanded into Cambodia supporting ten students there. More scholarships will be awarded January 2013 for Singapore Students.
New chapters of AkarakA are in the process of being registered in Toronto, Sydney and Hong Kong. Teams of dedicated volunteers in each city are working hard to establish the AkarakA mission so that our network can expand and more students can receive a college education.
