What We Do

AJSA’s approach is to adopt inclusive and empowering ways of working with the most marginalized groups in society that respect and promote equality. Our experience has shown us that effective development requires maintaining long term relationships with people and working to understand their needs and situation holistically in order to enable their self-driven journeys towards empowerment and self-sufficiency. Thus, we emphasize a people centered integrated livelihood approach pointing the way directly towards adopting a facilitating role, developing local leadership, and supporting several pronged development projects.

To realize our vision and mission, we have been implementing several social, economic, educational, environmental and self-sustaining development initiatives since our inception.

AJSA is actively working to bring about social welfare for the needy: work in each Village of its Operational areas. For this manner, AJSA Focus its work for the development of underprivileged communities, tribal communities, environmental awareness, child education, women empowerment and supporting underprivileged communities are our major concerns because of the magnitude of these problems. We also manage and uphold “Income Generation Projects” to support needy and poor people. Self help groups were formed, trained and various income generation activities were undertaken by AJSA for vulnerable sections and communities, all of which aims to bring about social, economic and financial stability and sustainability to the society.
