Dr. Samanta is a great humanitarian who loves people and deserves to give humanitarian award and I am expressing my gratitude in receiving the 10th KISS Humanitarian Award from him. For me, this prize is no less than the Nobel Prize. (more…)

Prof. Achyuta Samanta is a Mahatma to all of you. He is giving you the education as well as the bright future. Hailing from rural area, after going through a series of indescribable hurdles and after establishing KIIT, he thought of doing something for the tribal students of Odisha and finally the result is the establishment of KISS.

Shri Prakash Javadekar
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.
The way KISS is trying to change the lives of tribal people in a positive way by providing education is very important. Babasaheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar had always given importance on the kind of upliftment through education of tribal, Dalits and other backward classes.
Realisation of Prof. Achyuta Samanta’s vision and dream is as much a matter of happiness for me and the entire country as for him. In KIIT and KISS, I see new Taxila University and Nalanda University being developed. (more…)
Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu
I thank Prof. Samanta for creating two beautiful institutions like KIIT and KISS. He is educating 25,000 poor children. It is a great service to humanity; and service to humanity is service to God. May God bless him to do many more such work. (more…)
I was impressed with KIIT. The time of the operation, the rapid expansion and the great dedication of the entire faculty and students are all great accomplishments. I commend KIIT for its work and wish it more success in the future.
Mr. Hyun Cho
Hon’ble Ambassador of Republic of Korea to India
It is an impressive institution that not only educates many young people but also gives them hope for the future. They will, no doubt, grow to become good citizens of the world.
Mr. K. C. Jena, Chairman
It is impossible to believe that a young man with the humility that he possesses, Dr. A. Samanta has been able to develop a university of the size and stature that is so impressive.
Mr. K. Ramamurthy Naidu
Dr. Achyuta Samanta is our God' said most children of KISS when asked who is your God? Nothing can be said about such a great soul.
Mr. Natha Nabeta Igeme
Words cannot explain what Samanta has done here. But time will show the powers of a dream. Please keep up with the dream.
Mr. Rajkeswur Purryag
GCSK, GOSK, President of The Republic of Mauritius
My visit to KISS has reconfirmed my belief that education is not preparation for life, but it is life itself. Dr. Samanta has successfully used education as a tool to fight poverty and inequality.
Mr. Sanjay Wadvani
I am very impressed with the facilities at KISS and KIIT.
Mr. Yuri Afanasiev
UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, India
It is difficult to imagine how such a colossal organisation has been set up without Government support. Now that UN has granted a special consultative status to KISS, it will go a long way in furthering the rights of tribal children globally.
Ms. Ashley Judd
KISS is the modern wonder of the world. It is transforming poverty through education and nutrition.
Ms. Beth A. Payne
In terms of infrastructure, aesthetics and student strength and quality, KIIT is no way less than any international university.
