Bhubaneswar, Oct 3 (LocalWire): KISS Foundation has extended a helping hand to a poor meritorious gupchup seller and enabled him to pursue a mechanical engineering course in KIIT-Deemed to be University.
Rahul Mahat, who hails from Anandapur under Anandapur municipality of Kendujhar district, secured 87 percent marks in his +2 exams this year.
Though he had dreamt of becoming a mechanical engineer, he couldn’t fulfill it because of poverty. His father, the sole bread earner of the family, died a few years back.
Due to poverty, even after getting good grades in +2, he took to selling Gupchup in the market to manage his family.
On knowing about him from the media, Dr. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KISS Foundation and MP, Kandhamal contacted Rahul’s family through his representatives. Dr. Samanta immediately announced that KISS Foundation will take the responsibility of his education in KIIT Deemed to be University free of cost.
Besides education, KISS Foundation will also facilitate his suitable employment, Dr. Samanta assured.
Expressing happiness, the family members of Rahul conveyed their gratitude to the KISS Foundation and Dr. Samanta for this noble gesture.
It is an endeavour of KISS Foundation to ensure that not even a single child is deprived of education due to any unfortunate circumstances, said Dr. Samanta.
