Aaron Ebner, Executive Director and Founder

Aaron has been leading the organization since 2010. Most days you can find him supporting the amazing  Agriculture and Experiential Learning team here at the AASD. Aaron first started coming to Peru to work for the Becky Fund in 2006 working on construction projects at schools. In grad school at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS), Adam Stieglitz and Aaron founded a student group called Team Peru and hosted grad students to work on projects in farming communities for two years. Adam and Aaron moved to Peru after graduating from MIIS with the dream of starting an innovative organization.  Aaron and Adam shared a bedroom with their dog Leroy and worked out of a dinning room for years building the foundation of what the organization is today. Aaron is beyond proud of this organization and he is a happy man living and working in rural Peru. He loves working at the farm, surfing, reading, and spending time with his family.
