Review from Guidestar

I first heard about Trees, Water, People when Stuart Conway came to our nature center to speak. I was impressed with him as a caring individual who took his simple idea and expanded it so that many people could be helped.
He continues to find new ways to help those in need with low overhead
and his ability to recruit volunteers.
He publishes a nice newsletter and has some attractive items to sell.
I started giving to TWP the day I heard him and I have continued to donate ever since.

I think Trees, Water & People is an excellent organization that is helping real people, as well as the environment. By working with communities, they are involved in grass roots efforts, and that's what makes mewant toI support them.

Trees Water People is much like it's name, concerned with the most essential values, our natural resources and people. I am consistently impressed and inspired by their work to protect and preserve natural resources and empower communities to thrive while doing the same. From solar heating to stove furnaces to tree planting, their approach to global problems has been innovative and effective. Their cost efficiency for running the organization and it's programs is outstanding and a true testament to their commitment to helping as many people as possible with the finances they have available. I only wish they had more visibility to gain greater support and have further reach in their work.

During my time as a volunteer with TWP I was able to learn firsthand about the dedication that the board members and employees have to their mission and their commitment to serve their constituents in responsible and effective ways. I really appreciate that their programs are community-led and positively impact the whole well-being of the people.

When the earth quake hit Haiti contacted them about channeling a donation to the people of Haiti. I contributed there. I have since followed their work and the quality of their products and am very impressed. They seem sincere and follow through with contacts, etc.

Post earth quake, Haiti. I have followed how many stoves have been placed in service since the quake.

"1,344 Stoves for Haitians Displaced by Earthquake" A million, two or three hundred thousand in awards in recent years. Why aren't more stoves going out?

I have followed the work of TWP for close to 15 years, and have been continuously impressed by the quality of their work, their integrity and transparency as an organization and small group of people, their efficiency, and their vision--and vision and efficiency don't always go together! They are practical and intelligent implementers as well, and respect both the cultural and natural environment of the different communities in Central America where they operate primarily. I think their work is now being "copied" or replicated in several other countries on other continents with similar problems of poverty and environmental degradation, and I also believe that everywhere they work, the empowerment of women is an important priority and a critical piece of the overall solution to raise the standard of living of households and families as well as larger communities.

Bravo, TWP!

I began following and reading about what the group was involved with. As time progressed, more than once I read in the news or online that the founder had won another prestigious award for his humanitarian contributions and I grew fascinated with the organization’s mission. When I discovered they were making stoves to reduce deforestation it hit a chord for I had lived a number of years in a third world country where the production of charcoal for cooking had, even back then, contributed significantly to erosion. I was so pleased to see a group really making a difference for the poor of the world. These stoves are fantastic and they make the everyday chore of preparing the family meal easier.

Then the earthquake of Haiti transpired. I felt compelled to help and Trees, Water & People came to mind. I did an online search, found they were accepting donations and I just knew I was giving to a group that would make sure my donation made a difference.

I can’t always do a lot but I try to make sure when I do that I give to groups who I have confidence in and Trees, Water & People is one of the most trustworthy groups I have the pleasure to support.

I don't donate to many organizations, but if I do I make sure that my contribution will be put to good use. I have spent time getting to know TWP, and I know that the organization is totally committed to making a difference in peoples' lives and to making this world a more habitable and sane place. I endorse and support their efforts 100%.
