First of all, thank you. Thank you to so many of you who reached out to SOIL to make sure that we are ok here in Haiti; to the hundreds who have donated to our relief fundraiser; to our friends and staff here in Haiti who put all hands on deck to organize a trip down to the south to bring much needed supplies and support to those who have lost loved ones, homes, livelihoods. Your outpouring of love and support has been truly touching.
We are relieved that all of our staff are all safe, but many have family in the south whose homes were destroyed. At this point, ...

I am a Master of Public Health student in Environmental Health at Emory University, and I worked with SOIL this summer to study various inexpensive and easy ways to disinfect urine before disposal.

SOIL’s style of Ecological Sanitation (the safe re-use of the ...

Yesterday SOIL's Executive Director Sasha Kramer was one of four panelists engaging in a discussion called "What We Know Now: Applying Lessons Learned to Advance Haiti’s Future" as part of the Clinton Global Initiative's Annual Meeting. The discussion was robust (and enjoyable!), and included a moving closing speech from President Bill Clinton. The session was recorded, so feel free to check out some or all of the conversation in the video below!
As we shared a few months ago, SOIL friends and supporters Drew and Scott Gurian have spent the past twelve weeks accomplishing an impressive and unique feat: driving 11,000 miles through 19 countries in a tiny car. They were participating in an annual event called the Mongol Rally, and at SOIL we were honored to journey with them on the side of that very tiny car. The Gurian brothers were rallying not just for the adventure, but also to show their support for SOIL and fundraise along the way. Check out their podcast about why they chose to support SOIL, and listen to ...

At SOIL we are incredibly pleased to share the news of this work, and also figured it's a great time to remind our friends about another great resource that Hesperian Health Guides and SOIL collaborated on: a sanitation guide called "Sanitation and Cleanliness for a Healthy Environ...
