St. Damien Annual Youth Gathering, in Choudwar (Odhisa, India)

The Damien Social Development Institute (DSDI) organized St. Damien Annual Youth Gathering for all the sponsored students of DSDI. The event was held on 8th February 2015 at Coudrin Chhatrabas (College Boys Hostel) Choudwar. We were honoured to have Mr. Anthres Tigga (IRS) as our Chief Guest, Fr. Martin O’Loghlen, sscc as Special Guest and Fr. Vijay Kumar Nayak as Guest of Honour of the day. There were about 115 students present.

The theme of the gathering was “Youth in Modern India.” It was divided into three subtopics: (1) Youth and their Challenges, (2) Youth and Society and (3) Role of Youth in Building Nation.

We had two energetic and vibrant resource persons: Mr. Bikram Nayak, the main speaker, and Mr. Gobinda Dalai, who inspired, motivated and challenged our youth. Each of them inspired the students with his valuable and inspiring message highlighting the importance of youth in the society and in the nation.

 

The students were from different leprosy colonies such as Gandhipalli, Nehrupalli in Cuttack, Trinathpalli in Choudwar and from Sainso village. The second half of the day was filled with colourful,  cultural programs performed by sponsored students.
