Description

AKKA is a non-profit, Educational, Linguistic and Cultural Organization; incorporated under Non Profit Corporation act of the State of Florida, to integrate, coordinate, network and unite the activities of all Kannadigas and Kannada Kootas for promotion and preservation of Kannada language and culture in North America. AKKA’s constituent units include; Board of Trustees and Board of Directors from all the regions of U.S.A. and Canada. AKKA was born in February 1998, at the World Kannada Sammelana-98 held in USA at Phoenix, Arizona. A group of prominent Kannadigas who believed in the need for a central organization were selected from across the country and formed a steering committee. This committee elected the office bearers of AKKA and the constitution was drafted. The 1st AKKA World Millennium Kannada Conference was held in Houston, Texas hosted by Kannada Vrinda of Houston in the year 2000. More than 2000 people attended this conference, one of the most talked about events. AKKA became a household word both in USA, Canada & Karnataka and became a symbol of pride for Kannadigas everywhere. In recognition of AKKA's successful efforts in promoting Kannada arts and culture in North America, the Government of Karnataka conferred the Rajyothsava Award to AKKA in December 2001. Currently, 30 Kannada Kootas (representing 60,000 Kannadigas) across North America are members of AKKA organization. The 2nd AKKA World Kannada Conference was held in Detroit, Michigan in 2002 hosted by Pampa Kannada Koota which scaled AKKA to greater heights, with more than 4000 Kannadigas attending the conference. The momentum generated by the gathering and networking of such large number of Kannadigas in Detroit carried onto Orlando, Florida. In 2004, Srigandha Kannada Koota hosted the 3rd AKKA World Kannada Conference. The 4th AKKA World Kannada Conference was held in Baltimore, Maryland in 2006 hosted by Kaveri Kannada Association. AKKA has actively involved in various charitable work in Karnataka by organizing many fundraising programs throughout North America. AKKA Charitable Work Donate To AKKA FLOOD RELIEF FUND As we all know, the entire north Karnataka and parts of coastal and Malnad regions are in the grip of one of the worst natural disasters the State has witnessed in a long time. The floods that have followed the torrential rains have brought unprecedented misery to lakhs of people. It has been in the form of death of many of their loved ones, destruction of houses, properties, crops and loss of most of their belongings. The State has also suffered huge losses with the washing away of roads, bridges, railway tracks and other public properties. Rescue, relief and rehabilitation operations for the affected people are a gigantic task and it will take weeks, if not months. In this hour of human tragedy, we can do our bit to support the hapless people as the governments efforts alone are not adequate. As flood relief in the Karnataka continues, I request all BOD members and Kannada koota presidents to co-ordinate and work with people in your area to raise emergency Flood Recovery fund for those who are affected by the floods in our home state of Karnataka Lot of our brothers and sisters back home are devastated and suffering with no food, no power, no drinking water and no basic amenities. AKKA will make sure these funds would be utilized to safeguard lives, put their lives back together and provide rehabilitation. Let us all put our hearts together and take the initiative to send a generous donation today. We cannot do it alone but together we can make a difference. Even a small contribution by each, makes a big amount as we all know - "Hani Hani Koodidre Halla".
