Financial Information and Annual Reports
It’s an exciting time at the SOIL offices in Haiti these days: Ecological sanitation (EcoSan) toilets built by SOIL and other organizations using SOIL’s designs are providing critical emergency sanitation services to thousands of people around the country, and SOIL’s social business pilot in Cap-Haiiten continues to take off with more and more people signing up for household or communal toilet services – demonstrating a truly sustainable pathway to solving the sanitation crisis. And as always, the wastes collected are safely transformed into organic, agricultural-grade compost at SOIL’s award-winning EcoSan waste treatment facilities.
In order to rebuild Haiti’s soil with the mountains of compost produced every month, SOIL continues to collaborate with reforestation and agricultural organizations and enterprises around the country, and agricultural interns from Haiti’s leading agronomy universities are getting hands-on experience at the SOIL research farm in northern Haiti testing SOIL’s compost vis-a-vis other soil amendments.
Thanks to your ongoing support, thousands of people across Haiti are living healthier, more dignified lives, planting trees, and growing more food. We truly could not do this work without the support of SOIL’s friends and family around the world. Thank you for allowing us to continue to dream big.
SOIL is a 501c (3) tax-exempt organization. Your donation is tax-deductible in the U.S.

We operate in a country where too many organizations have struggled to succeed, and too many billions of dollars have been spent to no avail. We are committed to using your gifts wisely to effect genuine, lasting change in Haiti. SOIL’s impact is due in large part to our commitments to:
- Cultural fluency: 62 of our 66 staff are Haitian, and all of our staff speak the local language (Haitian Creole) and endeavor to understand the social norms in the communities where we operate.
- Local sourcing: we purchase supplies locally and contract with local businesses whenever possible, which keeps our costs down while supporting the long-term expansion of Haiti’s economy.
- Inclusivity: beneficiaries are consulted at every step of project design and implementation, insuring that our programs are community-driven and responding to real, not simply perceived, needs.
- Sustainability: our projects are designed with identified income streams, and we support spin-off enterprises to encourage solutions that can become financially self-supporting.
- Expertise: we value knowledge gained through both formal training and life experience; because our dedicated employees live and work in the communities SOIL serves, they are truly experts in local solutions for sanitation, agriculture, business development, and community organizing.
SOIL is based solely in Haiti and we’re dedicated to financial efficiency, frugality, and transparency. Over 93% of every dollar contributed goes directly to our sanitation and environmental programs in Haiti and we’ve been hard at work making these programs stand out as success stories in a country still struggling to rebuild.
