It is a state with more than 100 tribes who are economically and educationally still backward. Venerable Acharya Buddharakkhita wished for long time to start a branch of Maha Bodhi Society in Arunachal Pradesh.
Mahabodhi Maitri Mandala (MMM) was founded in Diyun, a remote place in Arunachal Pradesh, on 3rd January 2003 with a primary school and hostel. Diyun is situated in the eastern part of AP.

At present there are 700 children studying in classes from LKG to 12th standard. The children are from all parts of Arunachal Pradesh belonging to various tribes.
