The word ajsa always gives a sense relief to my mind, especially because of the tremendous work it is doing in the field of health, education & environment protection. I have been personally associated with ajsa as an advisor & my experience with it is matchless as the focus of this organization is to serve the downtrodden & needy always with a smile. Ajsa's innovative way of reaching to the needy & downtrodden is indeed praiseworthy . I wish all the success to ajsa.

Great non-profit with life changing mission

Working here really helps me to grow my patience and persistence. I feel great that I can help the people around me. AJSA enables me to communicate with different NGOs working in different sectors of economy. This actually improve my skills in working with different people from different social background.

AJSA is an NGO which work closely with the people at grassroots level and serves people in terms of creating sustainable livelihood, providing quality education, empowering women with capacity building, promoting gender equity and making the community aware on climate change & DRR and building self-resilient communities. AJSA always helps the underprivileged communities to recognise and develop their ability and potential and organised themselves to respond to problems and needs. It constantly strives for social justice and supports to improve the quality of community life since 1989.

As AJSA works at grass root level, it gives me the opportunity to hear from communities, their views and their development. I am feeling proud for being associate with AJSA and working here, I can say, it’s a place of gaining lots of knowledge.
