Akuma talked to his flat mate Johannes Dörfner in Freising, Germany about his intentions of helping the poorest of poor by means of creating a humanitarian organisation. Johannes was happy about the idea and expressed his unlimited support for it.
|When Akuma Saningong was 11 years old, he had to live primary school to secondary school. He was heart-broken and forlorn because many of his classmates could not take this step. Their parents or guardians had no money to afford school fees for such an education. Stricken by this experience amongst others, the wish and desire grew in him to help disadvantaged and underprivileged young persons.
