“I have always wanted to serve and guide the new generation mainly those from low economic situations. I can now contribute to achieve this objective through the OWSD network”

Sandrine Labonté

“OWSD chapter Mauritius is just a new born and yet our team has tried to showcase the involvement of women in the field of science.”


“I am an artist and I have always been in awe in front of the discoveries of science which make me feel like I am part of something greater than myself. I feel privileged to be a member of the OWSD and use the integrated lens of both art and science to better understand the world within and around us .”
