Review for Trees, Water & People, Fort Collins, CO, USA
I was a International Development intern at Trees, Water & People, and I cannot express how wonderful the TWP staff is, as well as the work that they do in the U.S. and abroad. TWP is uses a rare approach to sustainable development in that they work BOTH in the U.S. and abroad, and the emphasize the health and well-being of BOTH humans and the environment. Their holistic approach also targets their work in some of the most marginalized communities around the world to work WITH them lead better lives as opposed to traditional forms of development which can have a top-down approach. TWP is quite the opposite, and always works directly with local non-profits and community leaders who know their communities best, and what they need - they are always working from the bottom-up.
As an intern, I gained practical grant-writing skills, and I was able to apply the knowledge from my Master's program to assist in their data analysis efforts and even help them build new partners. The staff is flexible with each intern and allows them to make the best of their experience! I felt taken care of, valued, and I made 10 new friends in the process of getting to know the entire staff. Keep up the great work!!
