ASORCOM was formed on 9 April 2013 by members of the Siyin-Chin Youth Network Organization (SCYNO) and the Siyin Project who were eager to help and develop the community they have grown up in, which means they are familiar with its needs. Working with the community closely to provide an outcome that will help create a more sustainable society, they envision community networks as a connectivity strategy that can contribute to solving the communication problems of rural and remote areas of Myanmar and establish an inclusive informal education system including a knowledge, skills and information sharing platform.
