NGO Profile :
Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) was incorporated in 1993 and is located in Odisha. The organization is an award winning centre of learning for poor tribal sections of society with a focus on formal education aimed at providing sustainable livelihood for well-rounded development. There are now 25,000 tribal children from 62 tribes pursuing their education from Class 1 to post-graduation levels at their fully free residential institute.

Some of their programs are as follows:

  • Mother Tongue Based Multi Lingual Early Childhood Education: KISS in collaboration with the Bernard Van Leer Foundation has started the Mother Tongue Based Multilingual Education (MT based MLE) program to address the need of the indigenous children who are enrolled in the school. The organization has set up a language lab in which indigenous children are taught in their own mother tongue so that they relate to their own culture and identity when they first enrolled in school.
  • English Access Micro scholarship Program: The English Access Micro-Scholarship Program was launched in the year 2010 at KISS with the purpose of upgrading students’ skill in reading, writing, speaking, and listening in English and appreciation of American & Indian Democratic principles and culture.  Currently the program provides a foundation of English language skills to 550 talented students between the age group of 13 to 20 years from disadvantaged sections and gives participants English skills that lead to better jobs and educational prospects in their future endeavors.
  • Young Women Social Entrepreneurship Development Program: British Council in partnership with Diageo has launched the Young Women Social Entrepreneurship Development Program which is being implemented at KISS. This program provides advanced social enterprise training to female master trainers who will then cascade their knowledge by training aspiring and early-stage female social entrepreneurs in India. The first phase of the program consisted of girl students from the age group of 18 to 23 years from KISS, which is a home to 25,000 indigenous students.
