The Soil Project

SOIL is an acronym for Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods, a U.S. non-profit organization working in Haiti. SOIL promotes dignity, health and sustainable livelihoods through the transformation of wastes into resources.

What SOIL provides:

  • Enriches depleted soil by treating human waste and using it for compost…
  • Aids agriculture, forestation, public health…
  • Keeps Haiti’s water from pollution…
  • Increases jobs by employing local Haitians
  • Hosts sustainable agricultural internships for Haitian agronomy students
