Welcome to Asha Kiran Society

The Asha Kiran Society (AKS) is a non-profit organisation registered under the Societies Act of 1860 in the Koraput District of Orissa State. AKS was started in 1991 by a team of young people who wished to work towards the holistic development of the needy in Southern Orissa. AKS follows the principle of teaching everyone with all wisdom and undertakes various projects to that end. The intention of AKS is to develop the holistic health and encourage community empowerment in various groups in the Lamtaput area and Bondo villages of Khairput block.

In addition to a secondary level hospital, the Society is involved in Primary Health Care, Agriculture and Animal Husbandry, Education and Nutrition centres, Mother Tongue Literacy programs, Low Cost Construction, and a Pre-School program. The Literacy, Health, and Development programs extend to the Bonda hills of the Khairput block of the neighbouring Malkangiri district of Orissa. The AKS base is located 3 km from Lamtaput block and 40 km from Jeypore on the main district road. AKS outreach extends into various blocks of Koraput and the nearby districts via some 108 staff members. Many of whom are of the local community.

Our Community Life

 Community Life:

God moves in mysterious ways. He plants his footsteps in the sea and rides upon the storm’. He has no set formula on how he calls his children to join Him in His work.

"Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls."

St. Mathew 11:28
