Trees, Water & People
April 16, 2010
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.
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.
