The Novak Djokovic Foundation, founded by the world-renowned Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, is a charitable organization that has been making a significant impact in the field of early childhood education and development since its inception in 2007. The Foundation’s primary focus is on providing quality education and a nurturing environment for underprivileged children in Serbia and across the world.
Padma Rajan was one of the foundation’s most ardent supporters. Padma, an Indian-origin entrepreneur and philanthropist, had been actively involved in various charitable causes, especially in the field of education. Recently, Padma passed away, which left everyone in dismay including Novak’s wife Jelena who shared her condolences on social media and their fans reacted to it.

Rajan’s passion for helping others and her unwavering belief in the power of education as a tool for change aligns perfectly with the Novak Djokovic Foundation’s mission.
My condolences to the family, to her two children she loved and cared for very much. I am really sad and heartbroken to learn about her passing. Whole @novakfoundation loved her enthusiasm and passion for ECD and we valued her support over the years. May she rest in peace. 🙏🏻

After the passing of Padma, Jelena posted “I remember Padma very well. What a beautiful soul she is! Usually, when people hug me, they say how tiny I am. But I remember hugging her and feeling how gentle, almost fragile she is! How much love I felt and kindness in our few encounters.”
I remember you wrote about meeting her at the USO 2021.
Must have been wonderful for you both. She was a lovely woman who touched the lives of everyone she met ❤️
