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!!!

Their mission is to improve people’s lives by helping communities protect, conserve and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends.

This mission is guided by two core beliefs:
• that natural resources are best protected when local people play an active
role in their care and management; and
• preserving local trees, wetlands, and watersheds is essential for the ongoing social, economic, and environmental health of communities everywhere.

And this is exactly what they are doing! They care and it shows!

I am writing this review to help them win the $5,000 prize from GuideStar USA, Inc.

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 really appreciated an email I received from Trees, Water & People
10-15-10 titled Sebastian Speaks from Haiti. It was beautifully written and I felt connected to what was happening there.

Notes from the field: A Sobering Account of Haiti
Sebastian Africano, TWP's
International Director, sends this personal account from Northwest Haiti, reminding us of the epic challenges faced by the Haitian people each and every day. Sebastian has been in the country since November 8th visiting TWP partners and assessing the current situation in this debastated county.
"crazy day - went to visit some AMURT project sites, and as we left were greeted with a dead body in the street three houses down from us first thing in the AM. Cholera is real and is spreading. We are being extra cautious to be sure, but there is no fear from our side, just respect. We saw another body in Okap - in the back of a pickup truck with family wailing at full bore in the street. It hits suddenly, and takes people quickly. Sure enough, after our site visits and a quick trip to a beach near here, we came across a procession of vehicles coming downhill from Source Chaude - probably 15 - 20 people jammed in a Izuzu Trooper, all screaming like they were being kidnapped. A procession of motorbikes and walkers followed. Nuts. SC is cool, pitch black and over-run by goats, pigs, clouds of mosquitos, and feisty Haitians. Remember that this is where Paul and Andrew came down with severe malaria - it's full on roulette. All water in the taps, etc...comes from a sulfurous steaming hot spring, but we filter it, chlorinate it and re-filter it in a Brita just to be sure. I'm sleeping in a woven hammock I bought in Honduras, behind one of AMURT's buildings, in a windier area, free of mosquitos. I woke up this morning at dawn to the sound of marching, and uncovered my face to find myself completely surrounded by a sea of goats. Got to watch the newborn kids chase each other around all morning - clumsy and clueless as to their eventual purpose. The country side is nice. Our people at AMURT are doing some strong strong work, and are definitely inspiring to be with. Tomorrow I'll follow them during an actual work day, and then head back to PAP on Tuesday morning, with a potential stop through the waterfall I mentioned yesterday (glorious). I'll meet with who I can on Tues and Wed, then leave for DC on Thursday morning..."

Then there was a link to learn how you can help bring clean cookstoves to the Haitian people, helping them to fight the spread of water borne diseases such as cholera.

It meant a lot to me to be able to read an email from someone who was actually there. And could describe the wonderful along with the awful.

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.
