During this holiday season, we want you to know that we appreciate your support of our organization! At Trees, Water & People (TWP), we work with communities that are facing very difficult environmental and social challenges. Our staff and partners are connecting local people to important resources and tools for natural resource conservation and economic development.In 2013, generous donors helped fund many projects, including:
- Building the Sacred Earth Lodge – a one-of-a-kind renewable energy training facility for Native Americans
- Construction of clean cookstoves in Guatemala to reduce deforestation and indoor air pollution
- Helping hundreds of rural families in Honduras gain access to solar lighting technologies
- Training for 300 Haitian farmers in sustainable agriculture and watershed protection
- Providing healthy, organic produce to Lakota families living on the Pine Ridge Reservation
- Producing 50,000 trees in our community tree nursery in El Porvenir, El Salvador
As we make plans for 2014, we hope you will consider supporting our innovative, community-based programs that are helping people and the planet!
