We Love STEM partners with NGO Voice of World
This past summer (July 2019), our founder and president Ishani Das visited "Voice of World", a multi-unit non-profit Social Welfare Organization working for underprivileged, differently abled children in Kolkata, India. Ishani got the opportunity to meet the visually impaired students and demo her project "A Wearable Device for the Visually Impaired Using GPS and GSM Services" with them. The students and the school gave several new ideas to help visually impaired people's lives using STEM skills, and they were eager to see what We Love STEM can bring during next the visit! The event was extremely inspiring and rewarding for Ishani. She donated Rs10,000 from her prize money which she won in 2019 Synopsys championship. Ishani met the VoW officials, and committed to partner with them to purse a future relationship between VoW and WLS. During the upcoming month (Oct 2019), We Love STEM will host an informational booth and fundraising event for VoW at a popular Indian festival in the Bay Area, the Agomoni Durga Puja. Here, we hope to make our local community aware of the work that WLS and VoW are doing and get community support.
