Mansingh Soren is from Gopalpur village in Odisha. Mansingh lost his father and his mother works as a daily wage worker. With the meager income, it was very difficult for his mother to provide for his education. So, his mother admitted him in KISS. With guidance and care, Mansingh started a new life. He concentrated in his studies and does well in academics. Mansingh is now in class 7. Looking at his interest in Kho-kho, he was encouraged by his coach. Mansingh participated in the Under 14 State level Kho-Kho meet where everyone appreciated his performance. He now looks forward to his future and hopes to join the army. Your support can help poor tribal children like Mansingh achieve a better future.
