SOIL Featured in Global Citizen
At SOIL, we are motivated by the belief that the most pervasive human rights abuse globally is poverty. That’s why we are so committed to our work in Haiti, the poorest and most environmentally degraded country in the Western Hemisphere. Despite fifty years of receiving considerable aid, Haiti has become poorer every year, further exacerbating the country’s vulnerability to climate change.
“In Northern Haiti, particularly in communities that are vulnerable to climate change, the population is underserved, underrepresented, and don’t often have access to a toilet” – Eliza Parish, Director of Development
This past week SOIL was featured in an article by Global Citizen, an international education and advocacy organization working to catalyze the movement to end extreme poverty. The article highlights SOIL’s full cycle sanitation solution in Haiti from its early days to now, as well as our hopes for the future in creating climate resilient solutions for vulnerable populations. We are grateful to Global Citizen for raising awareness of our work in Haiti and for sharing our story. You can check out the full article here.
SOIL depends on individual donations from people like you to fund our lifesaving, earth-restoring sanitation services in Haiti. Please consider supporting SOIL today.
