Trees, Water & People supports people and the planet with help from FBB membersBy Administrator
Trees, Water & People was our Natural World beneficiary for the second quarter of 2013. Development Director Heather Herrell shared this report on how TWP will use the grant they received from FBB. FBB members donated $8,725 to TWP last quarter.
On behalf of the communities we serve around the globe, Trees, Water & People extends its sincere gratitude to Foundation Beyond Belief for its support! Your generosity will directly benefit both people and the planet for years to come.
Trees, Water & People is dedicated to improving people’s lives by helping communities to protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends. We believe that natural resources are best protected when local people play an active role in their care and management.
With your support, we will be able to continue and expand our programs:
- Efficient solar air heaters for Native American families living on reservations across the U.S. Great Plains to warm homes and save money
- Green Job Training for tribal members in renewable energy and energy efficiency at the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center to provide valuable skills for employment
- Fresh produce from Solar Warrior Farm for Native American families on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota to improve health
- Life-saving clean cookstoves for impoverished indigenous families throughout Central America and Haiti to reduce deadly indoor air pollution
- Cleantech solar home lighting and cell phone charging devices for rural off-grid families in Honduras and Peru to improve livelihoods
- Community tree nurseries and reforestation projects throughout Latin America to protect local environments and combat global climate change
We cannot thank you enough for your generosity. Your caring and sharing empowers Trees, Water & People to accomplish our mission.
