About

The Andean Alliance (AASD) exists to raise the standard of living for indigenous Peruvians in high-altitude communities. All projects – including our flagship greenhouse program – address a specific community need and are designed to be educational, collaborative, and participatory. We work closely with graduate students in a wide range of development studies and offer them an opportunity to incorporate AASD programmatic needs into their curriculum, allowing for a transformative, immersive learning experience.

The fundamental difference between the AASD and other NGOs is that we use the collective intelligence of stakeholders and scholars to address the unique needs of each community. Many other NGOs rely on a “one-size fits all” approach, which could, in turn, lead to unsuccessful projects. The AASD defines success through impact, and our projects are both successful and sustainable because we remain accountable to the unique needs of each community.

Team Peru has become a movement that allows for students to make the most of their education, while simultaneously having a positive impact on people’s lives. In conjunction with the Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a professional environment that caters to his or her particular academic area of focus. Based on each individual’s knowledge, interests, and passion, each participant is assigned to a project where, as a group, they are encouraged to take full ownership and responsibility of the planning and implementation of that project. Leaders are there to assist and facilitate this process.
