Organization Background

in 2006 through the Center for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (CAWST) Gemma Bulos and Kevin Lee facilitated trainings for the Bio-sand Filter. We then opened up the office of ASDSW to support the results of this training. This expanded quickly to include capacity development for both the technical and organizational side of the water and sanitation issues.

Over the years of 2007-11 ASDSW started to get into water system implementation and then working with local governmnents building capacity, accountability and transparency into their WASH related programs. We are now 2 offices with 30 staffs working with communities and local governments all over the Philippines. ASDSW believes that the communities and local governments can work in partnership identifying their needs and implementing their solutions. ASDSW is a demand driven needs based organization that implements solutions for the needs. The technologies are developed based on the specific requirements and are always implemented with capacity development of the community and organization so as to sustain the efforts for the future.
