My name is Nikita Ahya. I want to raise funds for the training of Sumitra Naik, the student of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences located in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. This organization provides free education to the tribal poorest of the poor children. 

Sumitra is doing her Intermediate in Arts but for Sumitra, Rugby is life. and why not? Rugby has empowered her and made her travel five countries. She is an ace Rugby player and plays from Scrum position.  She has also played as the Captain of Girls Rugby Team of India. 

A tribal girl born in poverty in remote Jajpur district of Odisha, sumitra has braved domestic violence. Her father was a daily wage labourer who spent limited earned money on alcohol. He would beat 2 young siblings and sumitra's mother when he came home. Sumitra's mother worked as a domestic help to bring her children up.  At a point of time, Sumitra had to drop out to take care of her siblings. When they could not bear the torture of poverty and violence anymore, they flee to Bhubaneswar. 

Sumitra took admission in KISS and there has been no looking back. She was invited in TEDX Pune to deliver a talk on Why not and share her journey. 

 Sumitra plays Rugby really well, Help KISS fund her training to finetune her techniques. Her story is the story from  Shanty slums to Rugby Queen. The trainer requires a lot of investment and your aid can help Sumitra achieve her dream!
