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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a supporter of Trees, Water & People for a couple of years. I originally found them because I was looking for an organization that plants trees for carbon offsets. TWP does that and so much more! I had the wonderful opportunity to travel with TWP to Honduras in January and see on the ground the kind of work that they do. I was so impressed with how TWP works with local partners to help rural people while at the same time helping the environment. Our group participated in building two fuel efficient and clean burning wood cook stoves (they use just 10% of the wood of traditional stoves) and construction of wire and cement pilas for rainwater catchment. We also interacted with people in the communities, with the help of TWP's employee in Central America who acted as interpreter. I was so impressed with the organization, the people, and the work that they do. TWP makes their funding go a long way, making a big difference in people's lives with a little bit of money.
