Review for Trees, Water & People, Fort Collins, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is my 3rd year working with TWP and I continue to be excited about the significant contributions the organization is able to make on tribal lands and in communities throughout Central America.
Some of the highlights in the past year include planting of 10,000 trees on the Pine Ridge Reservation, the work to build a home for a Lakota Family based on sustainable Compress-Earth-Block technology, and supporting Hopi recycling entrepreneur Tyler Tawahangva in the launch of his business, Cloud Nine Recycling. In addition, I’m particularly excited about the work to build the Nicaraguan Center for Forests, Energy & Climate, which will really get going in the next year.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to continue supporting these projects.

Review for Trees, Water & People, Fort Collins, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

TWP is a quality organization making meaningful contributions to both people in need and to the environment.

I am excited by the contribution TWP makes with its partners on tribal lands and in communities throughout Central America and Haiti. Over the years, it has expanded efforts to include clean cookstoves to reduce deforestation, and solar energy to provide alternatives to carbon-based fuels. Providing such sustainable solutions also has a positive impact on the lives of the people in the communities TWP serves.

TWP provides the opportunity to get directly involved with projects and people. Over the past two summers, I’ve participated in several volunteer trips to the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center (RCREC) on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. I’ve contributed to, and learned from, efforts in green building, green business development, and renewable energy. I’ve gotten to know several members of the local community, learning a lot about the Lakota people and the challenges they face today.
