Following the tragic 2015 Gorkha Earthquake in Nepal, tourist numbers to the small South Asian nation fell substantially. Prakash launched the NepalNow initiative to promote tourism, encourage people to travel to the country and share his country with the world. Prakash garnered support from the CBI who donated $20,000 and according to Prakesh contributed an equivalent 12 days of free consulting worth around $15,000. So far the NepalNow initiative has amassed a substantial following on social media, and has proven to be an effective way of uniting the Nepalese in the cause of promoting their country. NepalNOW.org has received nearly 150,000 visits in its 18 months in operation, and has sparked interest and raised the number of tourists entering the country by an estimated 2,000 visitors.
