Alliance for International Reforestation, Inc.
November 9, 2012

My husband and I were blessed to spend 8 days in Guatemala, planting trees and building a fuel efficient stove in a villager's home. AIR Guatemala's Director, Dr. Anne Hallum, exhibits such love for the people that we were warmly welcomed just by being a part of AIR's team. We've been on several mission work teams through our church before, and would have to say that this was one of the best accomodations we've experienced. Although Guatemala is noted for being off limits to foreigners because of the crime, we never felt unsafe. The local staff is not only efficient and hard working, but very caring, meeting the needs of all the volunteers. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see the real Guatemala and anyone wanting some good, hard physical labor. It's so rewarding to see the difference between the mudslides caused by deforestation and the beautiful older forests that AIR has planted. If you can't go on the trip, donating to this cause really makes a huge impact to the environment and promotes world peace.
