I am associated with this AJSA from last 4 years, AJSA is an organization which is taking care of the community with utmost commitment and Gandhian ideology&True spirit since 1989. The efforts Of AJSA on “Adarsh Gram Gathan Abhiyan “Is highly appreciable. They have created a landmark through different activities like Forest Protection, Grain bank and Seed Banks, SHG Formation & Organic Farming etc. ,Without any funding support. The organization every activity which is based on sustainability is still reflecting in quality of lives and ln the targeted villages of Bolangir Disrict of Orissa,India.

AJSA is a pioneer in many ways .Their good work is getting recognition from all the corners and now become role model for everyone. It has very good ability in Community mobilsation and supporting community based smaller organizations . I do believe that, it is organizations such as AJSA that are creating lasting change in the lives of the fringe communities and wish them every success to reach their next target.
