The Mobius Foundation has been at the forefront of spreading awareness about sustainability in a bid to improve the prospect of healthy living for upcoming generations in India. 

The five key ideologies driving the foundation are - population stabilisation, education, renewable energy, ecological conservation and recycling. All five are intrinsic to triggering meaningful change in the drive for sustainable living.

Take a look at some of their key endeavours below


Through Aakar, Mobius is attempting to spread awareness about family planning. The work has been undertaken in the districts of Bahraich and Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh. With assistance from Impact Communications, the foundation continues to provide contraceptives to villagers. In addition, contraceptives are given to married couples to ensure adequate spacing between children. 

In addition, the foundation has come up with concepts like “Zimmedar Hum” and “Dampatti No1” aimed at providing guidance about family planning to couples.

Education through environment consciousness

Mobius Foundation believes that educating people is the best way to impart a sustainable lifestyle. As part of this, the foundation has instituted the “Gyan Anant Vidyalaya” and “World Environment School”. The goal of these institutions is to provide practical education with focus on the value of sustainable living.

Mobile health camps

The foundation has also come up with mobile health camps in villages around Sonipat to spread awareness among students, youth, farmers, and women. The camps are organised annually, and the foundation intends to organise 48 health camps around the year. In October 2020, 297 patients received healthcare through such camps.

Afforestation work

Mobius Foundation has also undertaken afforestation work, especially in the aftermath of lockdowns that were imposed in the country because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In November 2020, maintenance work in the form of manure, deweeding, and fencing was carried out in Karnataka.
