Ami Dar

,

Executive Director of Action Without Borders / Idealist.org

Ami Dar was born in Israel and grew up there and in Peru and Mexico. At 18, he was drafted into the Israeli army, where he served as a paratrooper in the Lebanese war of 1982. The misery, destruction and poverty he saw in Lebanon and Central America led him to start Action Without Borders. In 2000, the Stern Family Fund awarded Dar an annual $100,000 Public Interest Pioneer grant (renewed in 2001) to help support his work with AWB. In 2002, 2003, and 2004 the Nonprofit Times included Dar in its annual list of the 50 most influential people in the nonprofit sector, and in the fall of 2004 Ashoka invited Dar to join its global fellowship of social entrepreneurs.
