The best way to give back to our most esteemed colleague and friend, Shubhada Wakade, who recently passed away is to care for a cause that would be nearest and dearest to her heart. That is her daughter’s education. For years Shubhada led the WISTEM program, mentoring young women to see their potential in science. Shubhada’ s daughter was her most precious gift, and we would like to be able to give an in-kind donation to her daughter Sargam in the care of Shubhada’ s memory.
Her Husband Mandar Vitthal Devalekar has also lost his job in the first wave of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Hence, we are now raising funds for this purpose, so that her daughter can be supported by good schools through to her college years.
Let some grander joy and mission come from this time of sorrow, and to know that Shubhada would be smiling down upon us.
Requesting all to please extend your possible support.
Thank you so very much.
