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 the development of our nation, by leveraging the youth demographic. Since 2014, we have worked with countless young minds across India on a range of challenges that continue to plague the country. Elixir has worked relentlessly to be a voice for the underprivileged, oppressed, and disenfranchised, whether it be by providing them with food, clothing, medicines, education and shills, or a roof over their head.
