GREG AIKENS
Program Director

I am a teacher of students who are blind and visually impaired in the Metro Atlanta area.  With interests in international development and teaching students who are blind and visually impaired, I joined the ETI team as a specialist in the area of teaching blind students. I hold an M.Ed. in Visual Disabilities from Peabody College at Vanderbilt University and a degree in Intercultural Studies from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.  While completing my seminary studies, I participated in a short internship in Central Asia which first introduced me to the needs of blind people in developing nations.  My experiences overseas led me to pursue a career in teaching with hopes of serving abroad in the future. 

As the Program Director for ETI, I oversee the development and implementation of ETI’s programs. This includes traveling to Nicaragua with teams to conduct research and build local relationships, as well as working with a team to develop program curricula.
