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

Rating: 5 stars  

It has been an honor to be involved with TWP for the past 11 years. Starting out as a volunteer and recently joining the Board of Directors, I have seen TWP grow as an organization. At the same time, it has been remarkable to watch as TWP's impact in both the United States and in Latin America expanded. TWP's impact has grown due to strong, insightful leadership from program directors that have been able to adapt to continuously evolving environmental and social issues. TWP was on the cutting-edge of the improved cookstove movement as pioneers of implementing the Rocket elbow technology. Likewise, TWP's innovative program on Native Lands in the western US has made them a leader in micro-enterprise development.

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

TWP's tree nursery and improved cookstove programs in Latin America. I lived in El Salvador for over two years working on these two programs for TWP. I saw firsthand how much these programs impact the lives of rural farmers and their families.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

building great friendships and working with other dedicated people to improve people's lives while also protecting the environment.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

develop innovative, self-sufficient programs effectively contributing to the betterment of communities around the world.
