A Cohort of Social Enterprises Building a Sustainable Future
SOIL is proud to be participating in the Global Social Benefit Institute (GSBI) at Santa Clara University’s Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship. GSBI works with social entrepreneurs from around the world on their business plan, financial model, and growth plan. We’re honored to join an accomplished cohort of social entrepreneurs in this six-month online course as we work to formalize SOIL’s five year strategy plan for growth and financial sustainability.
GSBI introduces SOIL and other members of their new women’s economic empowerment affinity group for women-led social enterprises in this new article. How did SOIL and our Executive Director, Dr. Sasha Kramer, make it to where we are today?
“From my work as a human rights observer, I had a strong network of community organizers in Haiti. They’d already been thinking about sanitation—for reasons of privacy, security, and disease control—and the potential to produce compost from human waste was another inducement, adding value for Haiti’s farmers. So together with this amazing group of Haitian community organizers and a brilliant engineer from the United States, I co-founded SOIL in 2006.” – Sasha Kramer
