Bringing the Shine Back to the Shrine

The global climate change has had a major impact on historical monuments in India. In the last few years the Indian government spent a lot of money on restoration and renovation of these historical monuments.  To contribute to this cause GEMS NPS International School's Bronze Award participants decided to pick up the task of renovating, cleaning and painting a 600-year-old shrine, Shri Shri Damodar Dev Satra located in the village Patbausi in Assam.

The shrine was destroyed in the 1964 earthquake and was repaired under instructions of the Chief Minister of Assam; since then the shrine has been uncared for. As part of the service activity of the IAYP Award programme, the 35 Bronze Award asprants volunteered their services for over five months to bring the shrine back to its glory.  Click for pictures
