Reviews for Alliance for International Reforestation, Inc.
I am retired and spend most of my time working with nonprofits. I have never worked with an organization where people get more bang for their buck. Super people doing really super things.
I recently joined AIR on one of their trips to Guatemala to plant trees, build stoves, and work with some of the local school children planting a vegetable garden. It was clear from day-one that Anne has a deep love and understanding of the local area and culture, and is working to promote sustainable preservation of the area. This organization truly supports the communities they work in, providing educational support to ensure the people understand the benefits of reforestation, and will continue using the land in a sustainable manner after the AIR support staff have left. I was thoroughly impressed by the respect they are shown throughout the community, and the good works they do both locally and internationally. I am continually impressed by the AIR family, and am thrilled to be able to work with them again in the future.

I love the work that A.I.R. is doing. Years ago I visited Guatemala and have visited again since. I love the Guatemalan people, and it is wonderful to have a non profit group there that is truly helping the people,
A.I.R. trains local folk to plant and tend more trees on the hillsides, thus avoiding mud slide disasters seen in other countries where preserving trees isn't widely understood when a hungry family needs fuel to cook their food. It's a catch -22 situation.The far more efficient stoves that they build for the villagers are so important in keeping the steep hills from being deforested, and the people with cooked food!
I am presently putting my 4th Guatemalan girl through high school, a small outlay with giant results. Raise the women of a country along with the men and you have a balanced society. How could anyone not want to contribute to such an effort! Mrs. Jan M Geisler, School Teacher, Florida, USA
Very impressed with the percentage of monies going to Guatemala and not for administration fees. Dr. Anne Hallum and her tireless efforts have been an inspiration to me and all those who know her. I strongly urge anyone that is looking for a non-profit that provides the most "bang for the buck," look no further!
