The mission of the Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation is to champion the observance of safe and distraction-free driving practices,  raise awareness in the community about dangers of distracted driving, and encourage drivers to be mindful of the safety of other drivers and passengers on the road. We work to fulfill this mission by giving back and promoting the cause. This page tells the story of How We Give Back. If you have an idea of how the Foundation could educate communities about the importance of driving distraction-free please Contact Us.
