The Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI) in Hyderabad highly appreciated the impact of the Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS), which has empowered tribals through education for the last 30 years.

ASCI, which carried out an impact assessment of various programmes of KISS over the last year and conducted a thorough review of multiple functions of KISS, expressed its confidence in the institute as it presented a related report to the Founder of KIIT and KISS, Dr Achyuta Samanta at its premises in Hyderabad.

KISS, the world’s largest tribal institute, has always worked towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. It was against this background that ASCI assessed KISS.

In this report, the programmes and all kinds of impacts of KISS were praised by the ASCI. Dr. Samanta expressed his gratitude to ASCI for appreciating KISS’s work.

ASCI is the oldest research and training institute of the Government of India. It is the third institute of its kind in the world and the only institute in Asia.

Dr. Samanta also delivered lectures at two places in Hyderabad during his visit.
