Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) is a Bhubaneshwar, Odisha based institute. Its aim is to liberate underprivileged tribal children still struggling to come out of the bondage of ignorance and illiteracy. The illiteracy problem is further compounded by the high dropout rate and low participation in higher education. Other 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 opportunities. To overcome these problems, the KISS was founded in 1993. Its main objective is to develop into a centre of learning for the poorest of the poor sections of the society with a focus on formal and livelihood education and scope for all-round development. Today KISS is the largest residential institute for the tribals in the world, providing accommodation, food, health care, education from kindergarten to post graduation, vocational training and all other basic amenities of life absolutely free with a job after completion of education. KISS has reached out to 20,000 children from 62 tribes of Odisha. This donation option will support the mid-day meals at school of 1 poor tribal child for a year.
