Background of Green Hill-Rangamati
Green Hill, a CHT people’s non-political development organization was commissioned on March 2, 1994 by some dedicated and highly educated tribal social workers based at Rangamati, Chittagong Hill Tracts with a view to promoting the socio-economic status of the poor CHT communities.
Eleven different indigenous communities along with the Bengali inhabit the greater Chittagong Hill Tracts (Rangamati, Bandarban and Khagrachari districts). It covers an area of 5093 square miles, mostly hilly and inaccessible. Its mountainous configuration, distinctive ethnicity with divergent culture, language and social practices in contrast to the rest of the country has clearly side lined the region from the mainstream society and its national development process. In addition to this, political wrangling involving the rights of the indigenous peoples over the last few decades has stifled small local initiatives and drives for ushering in any positive change in the CHT. Until recently this region has had no exposure to any major impact-centric development initiatives. A large part of CHT population thus continues to remain underprivileged and poor.
Since 1994 Green Hill has been committed to work with and for the underprivileged people of the CHT to alleviate their poverty situation. During the 26 years of Green Hill's existence many development initiatives have been undertaken with fairly encouraging results.
