The AASD is a trusted, recognized community-based organization in the Cusco region of Peru. The Center for Andean Studies is the place where academia and indigenous culture come together to share and collaborate. Through this interaction, we learn from the amazing strengths of Andean culture while supporting community-led development projects. Our family consists of an organizational staff, students, teachers, volunteers, community members, and supporters. Because people are our most important asset we have evolved an organizational culture that is supportive and learning based. Learn more and become a part of our family.
