The beautiful state of Arunachal Pradesh has every potential for its growth into a developed state. However, it must be ensured that its people are sufficiently facilitated with amenities, other need-based requirements, creating avenues and scope for growth and development. So in our vision we foresee a peaceful progressive state, Arunachal Pradesh where colourful people from different tribal communities reap the benefits of modern educational, scientific, social and economic development while preserving the best of their eco-cultural heritage thereby contributing towards national development.
The main mission of the organisation is establishment of educational institutions to provide free education to deprived children, provision of basic amenities and necessary facilities based on requirement, awareness generation in the field of health & family welfare, religious tolerance, social and communal harmony besides developing plans and programmes for sustainable economic growth while fighting to uproot all evil practices prevalent in tribal societies to bring them at par to other developed societies.
The school aims to prepare children to develop them into complete and successful individuals through right education. It aims to inculcate deep moral values I the children so that they emerge as persons with strong characteristics with healthy attitude infused with sense of social responsibilities so that they remain successful in every sphere of life and in turn contribute their best towards the society.
The name and style of the school Arunachal Pali Vidyapith derives its name from its parent organisation,Arunachal Pali Vidyapith Society and envisaged as a centre of Pali language learning sinceits inception in 1979. Keeping in mind the modern needs of the common mass,it was further reorganised into a regular residential school in 1994.Subsequently, the organisation approached the Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Govt. of India which have been consecutively releasing grants-in-aid since 1998-99.
The school has been able to cater to the educational needs of the people living in the fringe and remote areas of the state by providing quality and value added education. Out of the total 13 batches which appeared for AISSE examinations there has been cent percent pass records except for two ocassions missing it by slight margins.

Its is a well known fact that five district of Arunachal Pradesh- Tirap, Changlang, Lohit,Namsai and Upper Siang are in the focal point since they come under the domain of areas known for illicit cultivation of poppy, drug trafficking and drugs abuse. In these districts the instances of drug trafficking and addiction are increasing every year which is a great challenge to the tribal societies in this region. The most worrying part is increasing number of young addicts, school dropouts and unemployment. The drug addicts do not participate in socially and economicaly gainful activities and they become burden of the family and the society.
As a matter of fact, the organisation established a de-addiction centre namely APVS Treatment cum Rehabilitation Centre in 2008 with aid and logistic support from the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Govt. of India,. It is an initiative of the organisation to bring about drug demand reduction for prevention of drug abuse.

5. For entertainment and recreation the patients are provided to play indoor games and few outdoor. The centre in the recent past has proved to be very promising. In a span of more than a decade of its existence it had provided treatment and counselling to more than 250 addicts from Lohit,Namsai, Changlang, Tirap and Anjaw districts. There is report of successful recovery of addicts whose rate is above that of the national average.
