Some schools of Manipuri Bishnupuria tribal language started functioning at the Bishnupriya Manipuri inhabited areas of greater Moulvibazar District. One of them started in the Madhabpur Manipuri Lalitkala Academy in Kamalganj upazila recently. Sil Bangladesh, a foreign NGO working with indigenous people helped establish the school to teach Monipuri tribal children in their own language.
