I am thankful there is TWP. The work they do on the Lakota reservation in South Dakota makes me smile and want to give them a donation.

Trees Water and People is an organization that touches the lives of people in many positive ways. What excites me about this organization is that they develop economically and environmentally motivated solutions for the people in the communities they serve. For example, by getting people in Guatemala and Nicaragua involved in the manufacturing and use of forest saving stoves, they have helped create jobs that encourage healthy and safe living environments and economies. With growth TWP will be able to help people in more and more communities, creating a noticeable difference in the lives of people around the globe.

I love being around the TWP staff and helping them achieve the organizations goals, both in the US and abroad. They go out of their way to have volunteers feel like an integral part of the family...i wish there were more opportunities for me to get involved on the ground level.

I continue to support Trees Water and People and serve on the board because I have seen first-hand the work that they do in collaboration with its partners in Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Honduras . Several independent organizations have recognized TWP for their outstanding work with either cash awards, honors or both. These include the Ashden award from England, the Rio Tinto Environmental award and a UN environmental award. But aside from all the recognition and measurable success, the relationships that continue to grow, the empowerment of local communities that happens as the result of our collaboration with them, and the ensuing improvement to the lives of our partners has gained my undying respect and admiration.

Most recently, in the fall of 2010 I visited the Pine Ridge reservation as a guest of Henry Red Cloud, who has partnered with TWP on his solar power projects. Seeing those solar panels at work in one of the poorest communities in the United States reinforced my belief in the importance of the work TWP does.

Trees, Water & People does fantastic work in Colorado, on US Indian reservations and in Central America. I admire their work with stoves and solar applications that help the enviroment and families. They are caring people who also like to have fun raising money; their annual fundraiser is fun to attend.

Give it more opportunities to actually built the stoves and work with women in central America. It would be great if the trips they provide for volunteers did not cost so much.

In the developing world, which unfortunately includes American Indian Reservations as well as other third world nations, environmental issues have a great impact on the local economies, resources as and the health of the people. The efficient stoves, water supply programs and solar electrical systems provided and promoted by TWP go a long way towards helping inhabitants take care of themselves and their environment thus improving their quality of life. I believe my contributions aid this process.

TWP is a wonderful altruistic organization that is accomplishing very meaningful and practical success in their endeavors in Central America, with their sustainable stove and reforestation projects. I have affiliated with TWP for several years by including their Honduras partner, the Honduras Association for Development (AHDESA), in my annual study-trip itinerary in Honduras, each spring, for Oklahoma State University. I have seen the fruits of TWP's labor, funding, leadership, and human development support in Honduras, first-hand, working side-by-side with AHDESA promoters in rural communities. Stuart Conway and his staff are caring folks, and they have both their heads and hearts in all of their projects. They truly make a difference in empowering villagers in all of their project communities toward higher quality lives, in a more sustainable environment. I have encountered several NGOs in my international experience, and TWP is right at the top of my list as regards their ability to effectively channel their resources, funding, and expertise to result in consistent excellent results at the appropriate scale, to achieve positive results. They truly make a positive difference in the lives of so many people!
