Pe Vila sweeps up in front of the public toilet and shower he manages in the Shada neighborhood of Cap Haitien. As an emergency response to the cholera epidemic, which hit Shada especially hard, and building on lessons learned from the first public toilets, SOIL has moved to a model that pays individuals to manage public toilets. SOIL drops off and picks up the 15 gallon plastic drums without charge and pays managers, like Pe Vila, to maintain the facilities.
