In these circumstances present “ASHIKA” came into being with its former name of “Hiran Mohan Computer and Research Academy for Tribal Languages (HCRATL)” in 1999 due to observation of socio-economic problem in the community. To survive in these situations our organization’s existence was appreciable to the unemployed youth who were literate but jobless, seeking for assistance but no reliable response. HCRATL provided computer training and consequently started research work on tribal language and ultimately provided language training in Rangamati Hill District which was consequently got initiation to other Hill Districts also.
