Our Birthday Wish
This Earth Day, April 22nd, Trees, Water & People celebrates 15 years of helping people and the planet! Over these years we have worked with hundreds of communities across Central America, Haiti, and the United States, empowering tens of thousands of individuals to protect, conserve, and manage their most precious natural resources. This work has been challenging – we work with some of the most marginalized people in the world – but the rewards have been unimaginable. We have seen that, with the proper tools and resources, every community has the power to come together to care for their soils, forests, and watersheds.
From our very first reforestation projects on the San Carlos Malaga Farm in the Department of Suchitepesquez, Guatemala, we have grown into an organization that now manages 20 tree nurseries throughout Central America and Haiti. To date, with the help of many amazing partners, we have produced nearly 5 million trees – helping to improve soils, increase biodiversity, and maintain healthy watersheds.
To celebrate this Earth Day and our 15th birthday, we are raising funds for our Reforestation Program. Although we have made huge strides over the years, there is still much work to be done to bring forests back into balance.
Your generosity can help to strengthen our reforestation efforts in Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, and Haiti even more. Every donation made plants trees in communities that have been devastated by deforestation.
Show your love for our Mother Earth and your support for communities in need – make a donation today!
Show your love for Mother Earth and support community tree planting projects in Central America!
For every dollar you donate, we will plant a tree in one of our community-led nurseries. When the seedlings are ready for planting, families in surrounding communities will receive the trees to plant around their homes, providing nutritious sources of fruit, nuts, and coffee. We will also plant trees in protected areas of Central America, supporting soil conservation and watershed health in some of the most deforested regions of the world. Love your Mother; plant trees today!
Today is TWP’s 13th Birthday and Earth Day!! What a great way to celebrate 13 years of community-based sustainable development. To date, we have planted over 4 million trees, produced over 46,000 fuel-efficient cookstoves, and built over 800 solar air heating systems. We would like to thank all of our supporters who have helped us accomplish so much over the years.
We hope today you will take a moment to reflect on the amazing beauty surrounding us. Mother Earth gives us everything we need to survive and flourish…let us do our best to respect her and leave a healthy planet for our children and grandchildren.
May the forest be with you…
