Review from Guidestar
February 1, 2011

I was so excited to find Trees, Water, and People! This organization gets right to the basics and helps groups and individuals all over North and Central America preserve their environments while improving their lives. Planting trees, building solar heaters, learning about clean air and water. Supporting this organization lets me expand on what any individual can do in these important areas. In 1975 I saw what deforestation was doing in the mountain areas of Kashmir and determined to do my part to improve that situation somewhere. Trees, Water, and People provided me with the perfect vehicle!

The Great!

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

From TWP I learned about Justa stoves that reduce the use of firewood for cooking and greatly reduce smoke in homes. I was so excited to actually see one in use last spring!

Ways to make it better...

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

expand even further the opportunities for donors to visit and take part in the activities to improve lives and the environment. I would investigate the possibilites of this sort of visit for young people.

Our club has done a least a half dozen projects with TWP, involving reforestation and/or providing fuel-efficient stoves in several Central American countries. Some of our members, including myself, have also visited project, done some work, and seen for ourselves the enormously beneficial impact of TWP's work, in reducing deforestation and eliminating the respiratory and burn problems caused by cooking over open fires. I would give them the absolutely highest rating.

TWP was one of three beneficiaries of a fundraiser that my husband and I hosted for Haiti relief. As the only organization based in Fort Collins, they took on all the administrative responsibilities for the event and acted as the financial host for three organizations. It was beacuse of their wonderful staff and great organizational capacity that the event was so successful. In addition, with in weeks of having funds raised they sent more stoves to Haiti. Truly a great team and effort!

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!!
