Candle light Prayer at KISS for ‘Delhi Brave heart’

A prayer meeting in memory of the Delhi gang rape victim was held at Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS). With candles in hand and prayers on lips, 22,500 tribal students of the institute paid homage to the departed soul. The students disseminated the message that there is no place for such barbarity in a civilized society like ours where women are worshiped. Students of KISS have also decided not to celebrate the New Year in view of this unfortunate incident. The assembly, which was joined by Dr. A. Samanta, Founder KIIT & KISS and other staff members, condemned the inhumanity, while paying tribute to the victim, who succumbed to injuries after fighting for her life for 13 days.

Mega Guardians' Meet 2012 at KISS

Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) organized a mega guardians' meet on 30thDecember 2012. More than 40,000 people, all parents and guardians of tribal students of KISS, attended the meet. They got a firsthand experience of the institute where their wards are studying during the day long programme. 

Assembly of such a large number of tribals representing 62 tribes and 13 primitive tribal communities from all corners of Odisha is one of its kind. Like every year, KISS authorities made elaborate arrangements to greet the parents in this mega assembly. These arrangements included their food, shelter and transport.  

Parents and guardians attending the meet expressed their profound gratitude to Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS for securing the future of their children through KISS, which provides education from KG to PG, vocational training, food, accommodation and all other basic necessities of life absolutely free of cost to 22,500 tribal children. They were satisfied to see that their children are getting education and care at par with any good public school in a beautiful environment. 

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Samanta advised them that only education can ensure a dignified life to them, the traditional way of living is now impossible due to lack of natural resources. Ms. Saswati Bal, President, KIIT & KISS, Shri R. N. Dash, Secretary KISS, Dr. P. K. Routaray, CEO, KISS and Mr. P. K. Das, Livelihood Director, KISS also spoke on the occasion. As many as 50 guardians of KISS students, who are high achievers, were felicitated.
