Founder and Director
I’m Raquel Mason , founder and director of the Akshy Association. I have been living in India since 2008 and I direct the projects on the ground with the help of both the team in Spain and in India. I wanted my life to have a true meaning, convinced that we must feel a universal responsibility within us towards others. Therefore, I left my life comfortable in Spain to pursue a dream, that of a more just world.Every achievement is a reason for happiness for me.
Secretary and Trustee
In 2013 I visited India on a solidarity trip organized by Akshy, I met the School in the village of Amwan. I was impressed by the great work that is done with the most disadvantaged. . Now I work as Secretary. Keeping the smiles of those girls and boys who live in the greatest poverty gives me strength to keep my commitment.

Vocal / Communication Manager and Trustee
Namaste! A few years ago I was a volunteer at the Akshay Educational Center. The students gave me life lessons that they would never imagine, since then, I collaborate whenever I can in the area of Communication.
Vocal / Technology Manager and Trustee
I have always thought that it is very rewarding to donate your time and your know-how to causes that require it. Collaborating with Akshy fills me with satisfaction because I can see how every small gesture we make from Spain makes a big difference for its beneficiaries in India.
I started by supporting the Association with the Technological part and then I decided to join the Board of Trustees as a Member.
Vocal and Trustee
I’m Ana, I’m participating and supporting Akshy’s projects since 2015. I’ve worked as a music teacher for more than 5 years and when I got to know the school in Amwan and Jaitiya. I was surprised to see how education was transforming the reality of each one of those kids, how Akshy with very little was giving them real tools so that they could choose and get out of the poverty to which they were condemned. Since then I continue participating in Akshy and contributing from my place in the different projects of Akshy.
My commitment to life leads me to put my hands on the projects of Akshy helping with the numbers and their small market, in favor of the most needy in India.
Coordinator in Spain
I am Alexis Roitman, I know Akshy since 2015, I was lucky enough to go to Bodhgaya and see the projects that Akshy has been developing for more than 10 years. A work that impacts more than 200 families. Giving tools that last over time and that transforms the reality of the families that participate in the Akshy projects.
All the time that I was able to share in Akshy it did not leave me indifferent and when I returned to Spain I wanted to continue contributing with them, first as a volunteer and now as Coordinator. I hope I can continue to do my bit to support the social transformation that Akshy is carrying out with the most vulnerable in India.
I have always helped children in difficult situations as much as possible, but when a friend explained to me how her daughter wanted to improve the lives of the underprivileged children in Bihar, India, it seemed like a wonderful project in which I wanted to collaborate, making English translations .
The best way to support a project is with what you do best. I am a graphic designer and I am very happy to be able to participate actively in Akshy, taking the design of the web and all the graphic elements that are needed to make this great little project known to the world.
Namaste. I’m Juana. I came to Akshy from the hand of my friends Diego and Pilar. Here we discover a project that made us fall in love, we discovered the smile of the girls and boys who can go to school every day, we discovered the beautiful work that is done with the elderly and families. That’s how I got involved in sponsorship, in fairs and markets, in solidarity dinners and in weaving a dream together with other partners of Akshy and the Dalits of India.
I met Akshy for my friend Pilar, it seemed an interesting project and I became a partner. But when I traveled to India in 2013 I could see how beautiful and rewarding it is to be able to help the most needy children, women and old women.
I collaborate as a volunteer in the different events that take place.
