Documenting in Haiti

Greetings from Haiti. I’m here documenting the efforts of SOIL. This stands for “Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods” and the heroic staff and participants are tackling one of the most serious problems I have ever seen.

In Haiti only a tiny minority of the population are served by sanitation facilities. It is not surprising then that Haiti has one of the highest prevalence of Cholera in the world. SOIL is working to provide a replicable model of composting toilets that not only improves sanitation but increases soil fertility and vegetative cover to the island increasing the resilience of the natural systems.

This is the “Great Work” of our time and the people at SOIL are truly heroic. I’ll be posting video on this soon.
