Trees, Water, and People is.a unique organization. They are small enough To have personal contact with The projects they sponsor and large enough to make a real impact through careful planning and collaboration with local groups. I'm excited about the new garden initiative on t he Lakota Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. I have seen in person how these projects can raise self esteem AND conserve energy on the part of the people receiving help from TWP. I participated in an Ecotour to the reservation sponsored by TWP.

I have seen Trees, Water, People's work first hand on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. This organization works WITH the Lakota people, empowering them to help themselves. Henry Red Cloud operates a renewable energy center with the help of TWP. He trains Lakota men and women to construct and install solar heaters. Hundreds of reservation families are now warmer while honoring the Earth by reducing their dependence on fossil fuel.

Trees, Water, People also has projects in Central America and Haiti. These help to address the loss of forested land by replacing inefficient and unhealthful cooking stoves with ones requiring 70% less wood, while producing less smoke. Local women are consultants to assure that the type of stove matches the style of cooking in the area. Local entrepreneurs are encouraged to set up factories using local materials. TWP stove owners are delighted with the lower cost of cooking and cleaner air. In Haiti especially the ability to boil water to combat disease is critical.

I highly recommend this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Honduras, South Dakota

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand their capacity to set up more stove factories and solar heat training and construction centers. I would increase publicity for this organization so that more people would know about the wonderful work that they are doing.

Trees, Water & People is an amazing and inspiring non-profit organization, which is why I am an intern for grant researching and writing. They help communities help themselves by teaching them how to continue the work that TWP has helped them begin. By teaching local community members how to improve their home environment (with cleaner burning stoves), how to save energy and utilize what Mother Nature offers (with solar heating), how to grow their own community gardens with healthier and heirloom produce (within a shelter to lengthen the growing season), how to grow and plant trees (to help recover after a natural disaster), and how to reduce their environmental impact footprints, among others, TWP promotes and passes on knowledge and skills to help create a healthier environment for everyone, as we are all connected. There is no better way for a community to help themselves than with using their own hands-on work and experience, and then to continue passing it on to future generations, or even other communities.

As a donor to TWP my experience is from a distance, but due to the reports via FB I feel connected to a wonderful organization that is making a difference in the world. It is my hope that my donations from afar will assist in keeping the great staff going forward with their outstanding work.

The more I learn about TWP the more impressed I am with the impact their approach to helping communites in need to manage and conserve their natural resources. I became a part of TWP through a gift donation and will continue with personal contributions. The success that TWP is exhibiting is due to their sustainable efforts in the communities they are working. I am excited about their future because it means we all will have a future due to their efforts.

I have been included in the Trees, Water & People family for almost a year now as a National Program Intern. I cannot find the right words to describe the amount of gratitude and appreciation I feel for the excellent staff. They are people who truly care, truly want to make the difference, and who will truly go beyond all expectations to achieve positive change. I have witnessed so many community driven activities that help everyone involved to grow, learn, and open their eyes. I believe in the programs TWP has created and look forward to seeing them continue to succeed.

Trees, Water & People works with a network of partners in the U.S. and abroad to deliver enterprise based resource solutions to under served communities. Critical issues such as energy for heating and cooking, reforestation, and solar lighting and charging are addressed via creation of local businesses and jobs that provide much needed market development as well as life changing services. I have been thrilled and honored to serve as a Board member for almost a decade, and have had the uplifting opportunity to witness our programs at work in places like Haiti, Nicaragua, and Honduras as well as the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations in the Northern Plains. Meeting and working with our partners such as AHDESA and Prolena in Central America and Lakota Solar Enterprises at Pine Ridge has helped me realize the phenomenal impact appropriate and green technologies can have in developing world settings. And visiting the people we serve in their villages and homes, and seeing first hand the way lives are changed and improved gives me real hope for the future of all of us.

Trees, Water & People does remarkable, impactful, on the ground work to help some of the poorest of the poor in our world improve their lives through shifting resource use. In ways we can barely imagine living in the developed world, TWP helps deliver health, economic, and environmental benefits via strategic partnerships that promote local ownership and sustainability. For 14 years the organization has helped to lead the cutting edge of development strategies to enable people and communities to lift themselves up from the survival level of poverty to become productive, contributing members of societies with hopeful futures. A contribution to Trees, Water & People is a social investment that pays dividends many times over.

I have been involved with Trees, Water & People for 7 years as a Board member. I was attracted to them by the wonderful practicality of their appropriate technology work. We live in a complicated world, where it's easy to fill separated and inconsequential. TWP employs straightforward and meaningful approaches to make real differences in the lives of individuals, families, and communities, in cost effective, sustainable, and environmentally intelligent ways. They're at the vanguard of the new movement that's redefining international development and poverty alleviation via enterprise collaborations.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been involved with Trees, Water & People for several years now and have been very impressed with their mission, programs and how they administer them. We have focused on reforestation and tribal renewable energy but all their programs are excellent and would highly recommend this non-profit organization.

I have been involved with TWP for the last three years and have been extremely impressed with the many programs they are supporting. They have touched so many lives with their approach of sustainable energy, clean cooking, carbon offsets, etc. I have donated to these various programs for Christmas gifts, birthday gifts and "in memory of friends" I have lost. I will continue to look to Trees, Water and People to provide opportunities for me to help the peoples of our earth.

Trees, Water, People (TWP) has provided me and many of my friends with the vehichle for providing support to sustainable projects that will truly make a difference in people's lives. I have purchased "carbob offsets" for Christmas gifts to my family and friends who are thrilled to be part of something bigger than just themselves. I have purchased stoves and contributed money to the efforts in Haiti. When working through TWP I always think of Margaret Meads memorable quote, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK!!!

As a currently development intern at TWP, I am continuously impressed by the dedication and enthusiasm of the staff. It has a been an incredible experience to learn more about the non-profit sector and the necessary resources and hard work for executing high-impact projects. Trees, Water & People are endlessly dedicated to community driven projects that improve the quality of life for individuals. As a student of engineering, I have been very impressed by their ability to connect innovate technology with culturally appropriate solutions. I hope to continue to be involved with TWP and watch their ever growing impact.

Trees, Water, People is great in that it supports projects that have positive effects on so many different levels-- poverty, the environment, building communities. By implementing environmentally friendly energy sources into disadvantaged communities it helps the people in these communities AND is good for the environment at the same time. With projects both in the U.S. and abroad, Trees, Water, People lives up to it's slogan of "Helping People and the Planet."

As the International Development Intern during Fall 2011, I had wonderful experience with TWP. The staff, and everyone involved for that matter, is dedicated to fulfilling the mission and bettering the local and global communities we live in. I enjoyed the positive energy in the office and the welcoming atmosphere that created a thoughtful and forward thinking work environment.
