Each year, TWP takes a group of supporters to Central America to see first-hand our stove building and reforestation programs at work. Tour participants have the opportunity to actually help build a fuel-efficient stove and plant tree seedlings – meeting and working with the people in the communities we serve.
It’s not all work, though! Each tour also includes great sight-seeing destinations, cultural activities, and bird watching opportunities. Led by TWP International Director Stuart Conway, these trips are a chance to get an “insider’s view” of Central America and its many wonders. Tours are conducted through the Mesoamerican Tourism Alliance, an alliance of local organizations committed to the development and promotion of sustainable tourism as a means for supporting conservation efforts in Central America.
This year we will be visiting Guatemala! If you have never been to this amazing country, you are missing out on amazing people and culture.
