Improved Sanitation protects and saves lives
Since 2006, SOIL has been transforming wastes into resources in Haiti. By offering a container based toilet and composting waste treatment, SOIL is working to create a revolutionary social business model for providing access to safe, dignified sanitation that produces rich, organic compost as a natural resource for Haiti's badly depleted soils, while also creating economic opportunties in some of the world's most under-resourced communities.

Sanitation is a Basic Human Right
We know that sanitation is much more than just a toilet - it is safety and security, particularly for women and girls, it is a dignified solution for taking care of your most private hygienic needs, it is an essential component for protecting against public health crises, and, in our case, it means a commitment to regenerative and sustainable approaches to seemingly intractable problems.
We Can Create More Equitable & Resilient Futures Together
SOIL is building a model for sanitation services that ensures access to sanitation for everyone. SOIL's flagship service, EkoLakay, provides dense, urban communities without access to safely-managed sanitation with container-based toilets, weekly waste collection and transformative waste treatment. Learn more about our service and impact.
Lifesaving Sanitation Access
SOIL's container based sanitation (CBS) extends the human right of safe sanitation to the most vulnerable of households. Safely managed sanitation is critical for protecting the baseline health and dignity of communities.
Waste Treatment & Transformation
Since building the first functioning waste treatment facility in Haiti in 2009, SOIL remains one of the largest waste treatment operations in the country today, treating and transforming over 650 metric tons of waste each year.
Over 90% of SOIL's staff are local to the neighborhoods we serve; creating critical job opportunities for the very communities where we work. SOIL is focused on meeting local needs while also supporting long-term economic development.
Climate Change Resilient
The impacts of climate change and the pressing need to find sustainable solutions to providing access to basic services that make our planet and people more resilient have helped to frame SOIL’s model.
