Message from Secretary General


 

Dear Delegates,
 
Tagore once wrote, “You cannot cross the sea by merely standing and staring at the water.” This year, our vision is not only to uphold, but also to elevate the essence of debate, without any compromise. We intend to proffer three days brimming with diplomacy and unparalleled debate, to seal the deliberations with potent resolutions.
 
One can never emphasize enough on the significance of peaceful co-existence and rightful development of the world we live in right now. I assure you, not just another conference, but a journey of three days where you shall learn, grow and forge new bonds that shall last, while you embark upon diplomacy for reshaping the norms.
 
KIIT International Model United Nations is a legacy we are carrying forward and reopen it every year. I am grateful to our revered founder, our mentors, our sponsors and partners for their trust, support and guidance that has been fueling our passion for the conference, over the four successful editions of the past. I extend my gratitude to the Secretariat of KIIT International MUN 2017, for their hard work and perseverance, ensuring an exemplary conference.
 
With this, I along with the entire Secretariat, look forward to hosting you this October at KIIT International Model United Nations, 2017.
 
Sincerely,

Kalinga Institute of Social Science (KISS)


With a total of 123 tribal students, the foundation of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences had been laid in 1993. Since then, the institution has grown into the largest fully free and fully residential institute for the children of indigenous origin. Currently, the humanitarian institution sustains 25,000 children from 62 indigenous communities of Odisha.
 
These children are provided with free holistic education, vocational training, food, accommodation, health care, and other basic necessities. Over the next decade, the institution intends to educate 2,00,000 indigenous children, and has planned to set up its branches in ten more states, with support from the respective state governments, and the thirty districts of Odisha.

A number of prestigious international organisations such as UNESCO, UNICEF, UNFPA, as well as the US Federal Government have associated themselves with KISS for several initiatives and programmes that have been undertaken by the institute. With relentless dedication, KISS is determined to alleviate poverty by educating the poorest of the poor, and raise the educational standard, in order to sculpt a brighter future for the indigenous students it harbours.
