SJA has more than 20 years of experience in WASH sector. At the very beginning, SJA had been implemented WASH sector program with the support of NGO-Forum and UNICEF. Later-on from 2006 to 2012 with the support of WaterAid. SJA had been implemented two projects under the Advancing Sustainable Environmental Health (ASEH) program namely Community Participated Sustainable Water, Hygiene and Sanitation Project AND Enhancing Environmental Health by Community Organization. The aims of both projects were to

(i) ensure access to safe water supply and sanitation options;
