HAITI’S ECO TOILETS
Since 2006, SOIL has been working to provide safe in-house toilets and sanitation services to families living in some of Haiti’s poorest urban communities. By transforming toilet waste into compost, SOIL helps to reduce disease, restore soils, save water, increase food security and nurture climate resilience. Against a backdrop of multiple concurrent crises, including armed violence, cholera, inflation and political instability, SOIL is currently serving over 2,300 households - representing over 13,00 people - in urban Haiti with critical sanitation services and aims to expand to 5,000 households by 2025.
For a small monthly fee, SOIL provides people living in dense urban communities with safe, affordable household toilets and waste collection and treatment services.
SOIL then transforms the collected waste into compost, which is sold to farmers and businesses around Haiti to support agriculture, reforestation and climate change mitigation efforts.
SOIL’s sanitation and waste treatment operations provide dignified jobs in waste collection, transport and treatment, reversing the stigma associated with the sector.

More than 13,000 Haitians have access to SOIL’s toilets today. More than 500 tons of waste are transformed into organic compost every year.

COVID-19 EMERGENCY SUPPORT
In 2020 we provided emergency funds to support the deployment of public toilet facilities in Cap-Haitien, as well as at the HHA hospital’s COVID-19 area in Quartier Morin. The effort aimed to serve 218,000 people in six months and ensure the safe treatment of over 70 tons of human waste.
