Improved Sanitation protects and saves lives

Since 2006, SOIL has been transforming wastes into resources in Haiti. By offering a container based toilet and composting waste treatment, SOIL is working to create a revolutionary social business model for providing access to safe, dignified sanitation that produces rich, organic compost as a natural resource for Haiti's badly depleted soils, while also creating economic opportunties in some of the world's most under-resourced communities.

Sanitation is a Basic Human Right

We know that sanitation is much more than just a toilet - it is safety and security, particularly for women and girls, it is a dignified solution for taking care of your most private hygienic needs, it is an essential component for protecting against public health crises, and, in our case, it means a commitment to regenerative and sustainable approaches to seemingly intractable problems.
