Today our society is suffering from a plethora of negative influences that are dragging our nation’s progress. Poverty, unemployment, over-population, illiteracy, etc. are the major ones. There are efforts being done in the areas to curb the above mentioned concerns but more initiatives need to be taken especially by the youth of the country. Elixir is a step to ubiquitously, in every area do small and big deeds and deal with the concerns in our own smaller ways.
The vision of the Elixir Foundation is to work omnipresently in every area, that our country is backward in, and hence create a seamlessly integrated environment for the hand-in-hand development of the country. Their mission is to make sure that every citizen of this country has a morsel to eat, a roof over the head, books to get educated, a justly paid job, a women friendly society and lastly preserve and nourish our rich and vivid culture.
They strive for the objective to raise the educational and financial standard of the needy and to erase the caste and class discrimination in the society. Apart from that they focus to deal with the issues related to serious and infectious health problems.
