Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) is a 25-year-old organization that was founded in Orissa as a residential tribal school with the objective of providing quality education to the tribal children to help them overcome poverty and injustice. Considering education akin to providing eyesight to the blind, the founder of the institution rode on a mission to eradicate poverty and empower the destitute sections of the society through education and sustainable livelihood preserving the tribal heritage, culture, and values. The efforts of their strong workforce of 927 full-time staff and 1295 volunteers quickly gained momentum and started transforming the tribal areas with a student strength of crossing 25,000 and over 10000 meals served daily. KISS was bestowed as one of the Top 10 in India and Ranked 223rd amongst the Best 500 NGOs in the World by the NGO Advisor. Further, it was also awarded the Platinum level Certification by the Guide star India for its Documentation, Financial transparency and Compliance. KISS has persistently strived to become a preferred center of learning for the poor indigenous sections of the society with their focus on formal education aimed at providing sustainable livelihood and scope for holistic development.

Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) is in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha. Its aim is to liberate underprivileged tribal children out of the bondage of ignorance and illiteracy. The illiteracy problem is compounded by the high dropout rate. Problems like delinquency, child labor, and exploitation, child marriages, ill-health, unemployment, etc. are always on a rise due to lack of education and employment. The main objective of this program is to focus on providing nutritious meals for the children in the institute for all-round development. The children are served breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner. Additional nutritional supplements are also provided to students if required. Today KISS is the largest residential institute for the tribals in the world, providing education, accommodation, food, and healthcare. KISS has reached out to 20,000 children from 62 tribes of Odisha. Your donation will support the entire meal requirements of a poor tribal child for a year.
