mission & vision

No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate, research and cure.

Working at Acetylon started as a summer internship, but my work became my passion and life-long journey. I'm so fortunate to have the opportunity to impact the lives of others and support an effort to eradicate one of the world's deadliest epidemics, all while working with a group of passionate and motivated young individuals to encourage others like us in their endeavors. 

Foundation History

Kritika Singh founded Malaria Free World in 2014 when she was 16. It was based on her research at Acetylon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. She is now a University and Presidential Scholar at the Northeasterm University.
