The nonprofit Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (www.oursoil.org) is an organization in its tenth year in Haiti addressing several problems simultaneously (public health, reforestation, job creation) through ecological sanitation (composting waste). We also sponsor a club at Miami Beach Senior High called SOIL@MBSH, which is also a forum where students design and execute advocacy projects about sustainability locally and raise awareness about the global health crisis in sanitation, offering SOIL as a concrete way to support change.
SOIL Haiti | About SOIL
The mission of Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL) is to promote dignity, health, and sustainable livelihoods through the transformation of wastes into resources. We achieve this through developing social business models around ecological sanitation (EcoSan), a process in which nutrients from human wastes return to the soil rather than polluting fresh water resources.
Please take a look at the link to see how this 501c3 nonprofit has been working in Haiti in a manner that makes sense in addressing the lack of dignified and safe sanitation coverage in Haiti, a situation about which the UN World Toilet Day website asserts, “Today, 4.5 billion people live without a household toilet that safely disposes of their waste”.
World Toilet Day is about inspiring action to tackle the global sanitation crisis.
SOIL@MBSH takes action to tackle this crisis. Through student-created and student-executed service projects – such as art and essay contests, public spaces advocacy, teach-ins, art projects, grant-writing, and more students in SOIL@MBSH build resumes of service, learn about the nonprofit sector, and act locally to realize a global change .
Our Meeting Dates are posted on our SOIL@MBSH at the student activities page. https://fl01000126.schoolwires.net/Domain/324
And we invite everyone to follow SOIL on Social Media by visiting www.oursoil.org, and follow @SOILMBSH.
