SOIL (Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods) Turns Problem into Solution With Composting Toilets (Haiti)

A few months ago I shared a three minute video from John D. Liu of the EEMP about the work of SOIL (Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods) — an organisation that’s doing great work in Haiti to improve sanitation in a sustainable and affordable way, whilst simultaneously turning the problem (human waste) into a solution (improving agricultural production whilst reducing the incidence of diseases like cholera). John has just sent me the latest edit from his video work on the impoverished island nation, so below you’ll find an extended look at the work of SOIL, and its context. This video makes an excellent follow-up to the article we just posted a couple of days ago: Recycling Animal and Human Dung is the Key to Sustainable Farming.


  1. A beautifull project. I wish you a lot of luck and hope you’ll convince a lot of people to follow you. It’s great you’re giving these people work, food by the compost and health. Greetings from the Netherlands.

  2. This is a great project to donate a small amount of money to monthly, I have been for over a year now. So often we wonder how can we help I can see this in 10 years having transformed the country.


  3. A couple of years ago, Joe Jenkins of Humanure fame visited Haiti and taught those folks how to do his tech. It’s nice to see it’s still being practiced. Jenkins made a series of videos when he was there, called “Humanure Compost Training in Haiti” and they’re on youtube. Worth a watch, too.
