Household Sanitation Survey Almost Complete
In one of the urban neighborhoods hardest hit by cholera, Shada, Cap-Haitien, SOIL community workers have been going door-to-door to find out why. Over the past four weeks, SOIL has spoken with the residents of over 2,500 households about their access to sanitation and their family’s hygiene practices. The data gathered will paint an important picture of the sanitation realities of urban communities in Haiti and will help SOIL design a better pilot program to bring household EcoSan toilets to this neighborhood, and then hopefully someday, neighborhoods like it all across Haiti.
Keep an eye on the SOIL blog for a summary of results and more information about SOIL’s innovative new initiative to build low-cost EcoSan toilets in private homes – coming soon!
