I am currently working for Trees, Water and People as the Tribal Development intern. I have mostly been working on finding foundations and writing grant proposals for a number of different projects in TWP's Tribal program. I have been intrigued by the work TWP since I moved to Fort Collins and learned of the organization several years ago. As I am completing my under-grad for Colorado State University I actively pursued TWP as my top choice company for an internship. I began my work here in January of 2010 and have had nothing but a positive experience. The dedicated staff of this organization is something to admire. Everyday they are working to improve the lives of impoverished people and their natural environment through real world projects, on the ground level. The positive ambition of TWP shines through their work and has resulted in their international recognition. I highly value the experience I've gained while working for TWP and would recommend them to anyone who wants to gain experience with an excellent nonprofit.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and outgoing. The people behind this organization are what make it so successful. They are hard working and they truly believe in the mission of this organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do so much good! TWP could immediately streamline funds to several projects in progress and begin expanding those projects to meet the needs of as many people as possible.

Trees, Water and People is a top-notch conservation organization and a true community partner that has gone above and beyond to help our organization get off the ground in Fort Collins, Colorado. I have heard nothing but good things about TWP in the 12 years that I've known them.

I worked for Trees, Water & People for 4 months as a public relations intern and I couldn't have asked for a better organization to gain non-profit experience from. Trees, Water & People is so committed and passionate to the work that they do locally, nationally and internationally and it was very rewarding to be apart of their team. I am very grateful that I was given the opportunity to represent TWP as an intern because I was able to practice public relations for a cause that I truly believe in.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Trees, Water & People has a strong following in Northern Colorado for their international efforts, one could only imagine their potential if they were able to expand to other parts of the world

I have been an International Development Intern for TWP for several months, and have primarily been working on grant proposals, helped with a fund-raising event, and worked on various other international development projects. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Trees, Water & People, both because of the work that I have been able to do and the people that I have worked with. The fuel-efficient stoves and reforestation projects that I have been writing grant proposals for are incredible life-changing projects for the Central Americans and Haitians that they benefit, and are also beneficial for the overall global health of our world through reducing deforestation and carbon emissions. I feel so lucky that I have been given the opportunity to work on projects that have such important, lasting benefits to individuals and the environment. The TWP staff is very welcoming, and though everyone works very hard and is dedicated to this beneficial cause, there is always a feeling of friendliness, lightheartedness, and humor in the office. Though I will not be able to continue my internship due to my graduate school schedule, I will definitely continue to keep in contact with TWP staff and volunteer whenever possible.

The Great!

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

seeing photographs of the people that TWP's fuel-efficient stove and reforestation projects benefit in Central American and Haiti. Also, in seeing the vibrant community involved in TWP at the Renew the Rockies fund-raising event.

When I was a tribal intern I did a lot of research finding grants for Native American reservations on the Great Plains. It's extremely rewarding when I find potential grant money because it's such a good cause. Now I'm just volunteering and helping out with whatever the office needs help with at the time. Everyone that works here is easy and fun to work with. Plus, I'm learning a lot about how non-profits are run in general.

Trees, Water & People and I found each other about 8 years ago. I read a story in a magazine about their Central America fuel efficient cookstove work, thought it was one of the best appropriate technology ideas I had ever heard of, and became a supporter. At just about the same time, a mutual friend recommended me to the founders of the group, who were looking to expand their original Board of Directors. We met, we liked each other, I was invited to join the Board, and my involvement has grown ever since. Today, as Board President, I continue to be amazed at the effectiveness, efficiency, and importance of Trees, Water & People's work. From the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota to the forests of Honduras and the displaced persons camps of Haiti - we are on the ground making a difference both right now and into the future. We practice a model that includes enabling and partnering with local individuals and organizations to design and implement programs, to promote micro-enterprises for sustainable local economies, and to return the benefits of the projects as directly to the communities as possible. We believe we are on the cutting edge of the international movement of civil society to advance environmental, social, and economic justice via appropriate technology, resource stewardship, and local enterprise. Please join us!!

I began volunteering with Trees, Water & People in July of 2009. I started-out typing notes in Spanish for one of the office people and slowly progressed to entering data for t-shirts/trees and then thank you mailings, of course. The people were always friendly, and the office was always buzzing. I think it is neat that the group is in a medium to tight space and works so well together - a little colony of ants passionate about their work. Stuart, Richard, and Heather are the

During the course of my 9 months with TWP, I have grown to realize the incredible dedication of its staff members. TWP is committed to transparency, not only through its national and international programs, but through staff relations as well. This degree of honesty keeps TWP staff accountable to one another as well as the mission, allowing them to exercise creative problem solving facing any office or project difficulty. They are always so welcoming and appreciative of volunteers, and truly work to engage the community in all that they do. I have been lucky enough to serve as an intern/grantwriter, and so have become intimately acquainted with TWP's programs and partnerships. These programs employ a terrific balance of scientific knowledge and community empowerment to allow beneficiaries to take charge of their natural resources. This is hands down the most genuine and effective organization I have ever worked with.

I have been volunteering with TWP for about 7 months now and their are few organizations like it that can provide consistent, sustainable solutions to some of the greatest problems that plague not just our local community, but our global community. A great example of this was when the Haiti earthquake struck. TWP already had a relationship with a relief organization in Haiti named AMURT and they were able to quickly distribute much needed aid. But TWP's mission did not stop there. They also continue to provide their environmentally-friendly rocket stoves that will be of great use as the country of Haiti continues to rebuild. These stoves burn up to 70% cleaner than the open fire, substantially reduce deforestation, and provide a healthier environment for cooks and their families. What an amazing union of both a short-term and long-term solution for people in need!
