Akshaya is a great organization to help spread humanity in the world. I like their mission of feeding the poor who cant feed themselves.It has been a pleasant experience donating to them.

I saw a video of Akshaya on facebook. I was absolutely in awe of this mans sincerity in dealing with the poor and downtrodden of India. I checked out his website and saw all the Rotary references there. I immediately made a donation because I trust Rotary 100% and if they are associated with this I knew that it was100% real and trustworthy.

The work of this organisation first came to my attention as I watched the founder on CNN Heroes being honoured for his superhuman efforts to feed the poor in India. Astounded by Narayanan Krishnan's commitment and dedication to hungry and homeless individuals I felt that Akshaya USA should be supported. Inspired by this cause i have donated money and I hope to promote this worthwhile cause in the UK. The issue of hunger and extreme poverty in India can be tackled through the publicity and support given to organisations such as Akshaya USA. I have visited India and witnessed the hopelessness of the destitute first hand. I cannot begin to explain the helplessness and frustration that I experienced at this sight. I promised to myself that when I returned to the UK I would endeavour to help those working tirelessly to combat the evils of poverty and social inequality. By pledging my support for Akshaya USA I hope to have moved a step closer to realizing my dream of helping to serve those who are in need and more importantly supporting those on the front-line who work daily to help those who have nothing. Long may the Akshaya USA organisation continue.

I have been following Akshaya for some time now and have been looking at the work he has done and the commitment shown by Krishnan and one of my very close friends visited his place and has shared the great work he does
It surely is an inspiration to a lot of people to see the work of Mr,Krishnan
He has not only brought hope to the people on the streets in Madurai but also to the world to keep alive the tradition of giving.
It surely is a great sacrifice to be doing at such an young age. This is surely and truly one go greatest acts of selflessness,
The one incident which really was touching was the incident and comment from one of the destitute people to Krishnans mother on her first visit . The comment being that she is blessed to have a son like Krishnan , who is the reason for the person to be alive.
And i think he has taken the next step of building the home so as to take the people away from the streets and house them . This i think is Vision .
Mr.Krishnan has brought hope to a world where there is anger, greediness , selfishness and war.
So in a nutshell Mr,Krishnan is selfless, humble , inspirational and a visionary.

just sharing what I have learned and see someone with the true love of the Lord in their hearts..willing to give of themselves before others and working hard to help the less fortunate. most ppl work hard to better their own lives but this is something we could all learn from. May the Lord bless your work and all you have done.

I attended a lecture at BITS Pilani by Mr. Narayanan Krishnan. He is an exceptional human being and a exemplary figure for the human race and particularly Indians. He is doing an excellent job in the south and i hope people work out similar things in every part of India as well. I am a student right now, and i wish i could be more associated with him and his association as a volunteer in my vacations or something. All the Best to all your ventures.

Krishnan is an excellent example of humanity at its best. From the moment I saw the video documenting what the Akshaya Trust is doing great work. He goes against the conventional norms of the caste system by feeding and shaving the members of the mentally ill & destitute. This foundation is very much in need of support.
