Program Description

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 mid-day meals at the school of a poor tribal child for a year.
