Bhubaneswar, May 2:
Five girl students of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) have been selected by Tata Steel for ‘All India Tribal Youth Leadership Programme’ to be held at Asia Plateau, Panchgani, Maharashtra from May 5-11.
They are Parbati Tubid, Itaswari Kumura, Dabaki Naik, Anupama Bhoi and Saraswati Hansdah. All are persuing their PhD at KISS. The program is being organised by Tata Steel in collaboration with ‘Initiative of Change’ Panchgani.
The 7-day program will have nearly 100 youth from 52 different tribes from 20 states across India. The program is aimed to create a platform where the youth are able to interact and network with each other and at the same time gain some new perspective on leadership and values, so that they go out and do the good work with more zeal and inspiration.
Congratulating these students, Prof. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT and KISS said, this programme will surely inspire them to serve the downtrodden of the society.
