What I have seen in KISS was beyond my wildest imaginations; I am astonished to witness KISS’ unique financial model of providing free education to 25,000 poor tribal children.
KISS is a wonder. An institution like KISS is rare in the world. Impossible task has been achieved by Dr. Achyuta Samanta, the Founder of KISS. He has done something which not only changes the person, but the entire society, community and nation.
Achyuta Samanta's dedication and commitment for transforming the children to become worth citizen of the mother land are laudable. His selfless efforts in establishing and running the largest residential tribal institute have been recognised as a model to eradicate poverty and hunger through education alone.

Achyuta Samanta, after obtaining Master’s Degree in Chemistry in 1987 from Utkal University, started his career at 22 years of age. He has 30 years of teaching experience to his credit so far.
Prof. Samanta went on to serve KIIT as its first Chancellor and has had the distinction of being the youngest Chancellor of any Indian University.
