Story

ELIXIR FOUNDATION
Gifting Lives


WHO ARE WE?
In 2014, a group of a dynamic, diligent and dedicated cohort of young change-makers from across India were honoured by the President for their meaningful contribution to society. Fueled by a passion for continuing their work toward a better society, the awardees came together to form Elixir


Elixir was born to be run by the youth, of the youth and for the youth. An organization that ubiquitously enhances the lives of many and works towards developing our nation, by leveraging the youth demographic. Since 2014, we have worked with countless young minds across India across various issues that persist in the Indian landscape. Whether it be putting clothes on the back of people, filling their stomachs or putting a roof over their heads, Elixir has tirelessly endeavoured to be a voice for the less fortunate, downtrodden and marginalized.           

       


Project Shashakt

Project Sashakt, in partnership with HomeFirst Finance, is an initiative to empower households of factory workers living in the Narol & Naroda region of Ahmedabad.  By adopting 500 families from these regions, we are conducting interventions in the following areas: Skilling initiatives, Health camps, Educational development and Economic upliftment to ensure a better quality of life.

Area Overview :
Narol is situated on the outskirts of Ahmedabad city of Gujarat State, India. It is a growing industrial zone with a sizable population. The Narol Industrial Cluster is spread over an area of about 500 hectares in Narol, Shahwadi, Isanpur and Piplaj areas in Ahmedabad district and falls under the South zone Ahmadabad Municipal Corporation limits.
River Sabarmati flows towards the West while the industrial area is located towards the East. Towards its North is Ahmedabad city while to the South are the villages of Lambha and Jetalpur.
Narol Industrial Cluster is an agglomerate of 224 industries engaged in mainly dyeing and processing of textiles and dyes & chemicals. The families living here are most of the low and middle-income groups and are factory workers in these textile and chemical factories.

There are four pillars or verticals that were identified for this program and were derived from the survey results &need assessments of the selected the familiesPillar 1: - Skilling &. Employment

Pillar 2: - Health & Family Welfare

Pillar 3: - Education & Child Support

Pillar 4: - Awareness & Financial Literacy

Elixir engages the community and raises awareness of the value of receiving a solid education to advance in life at the local level in Narol. It makes an effort to use both traditional and unconventional approaches to make learning enjoyable.
These children's education and learning have suffered greatly as a result of the previous pandemic since the majority of them did not have access to modern conveniences like cell phones and reliable internet connections, which we now take for granted.
The Elixir Foundation will utilize the funds raised via this campaign to assist the education of the children living in these homes, breaking the cycle of poverty in their families and enabling children to receive an education through both conventional and non-traditional ways. so that they might one day contribute positively to society.
Utilization of funds:-
