As the outgoing Chairman of the Board of Directors of I4EI, I am delighted to have this opportunity to tell others what a great organization it is. I have been associated with I4EI's work for close to a decade, and I can vouch for the hard work, dedication and sincerity of the staff and my colleagues on the Board. The work that I4EI supports includes tree planting, conservation farming, enhanced local food production, education on HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases, fuel-efficient stove construction, sustainable fuel use, and the empowerment of women. The TIST program that I4EI supports has resulted in millions of trees being planted and maintained that would otherwise not exist, and to date has sequested hundreds of thousands of tonnes of carbon, with much more to come. TIST helps mitigate global climate change and has engaged more than 60,000 subsistence farmers in India, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Though leaving my role on the Board, I will continue to support I4EI's vital work that truly spans local to global sustainable development.
