Give Love foundation intro

http://givelove.org/GiveLove is a U.S. based skills training NGO dedicated to the teaching and promotion of Ecological Sanitation (EcoSan) and compost sanitation. Since 2010, the organization has worked in emergency and development contexts to introduce low-cost, decentralized sanitation systems based on container-based sanitation and humanure composting approaches. Specializing in dry toilets – also known as compost toilets – GiveLove’s technical teams work in high-need and water-scarce areas to provide safe alternatives to pit latrines in challenging environments. GiveLove has implemented training programs in Haiti, Nicaragua, Colombia, Uganda, Kenya, India and the United States (in partnership with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation). The organization works in partnership with NGOs, community-based organizations, schools, youth groups, universities, and government to build capacity in emerging sanitation sectors through: technical skills training, program design and support, staff training, monitoring and evaluation, and design consultancy. GiveLove seeks to strengthen local initiatives to improve sanitation in high-risk communities by designing appropriate sanitation solutions, and training master trainers and community-level sanitation technicians to implement and manage projects. Patricia Arquette, Executive Director Patricia Arquette founded GiveLove in January 2010 after the devastating earthquake in Haiti. Her hands-on approach to ecological sanitation has inspired the best experts in the field to work on our programs. Patricia’s interest in promoting compost sanitation and improving public health is motivated by the desire to protect water resources, restore soil fertility, and create more resilient communities. Most recently, Patricia spent over a month at Standing Rock to help build over 100 compost toilets. Rosetta Getty, Co-founder Rosetta traveled to Haiti in March 2010 to help raise funds for the organization's relief efforts. As a mother of four children, she supports GiveLove by creating opportunities for raising awareness about the global sanitation crisis, and its impact on child mortality and public health. Rosetta currently serves on our Board of Directors. Alisa Puga Keesey, Program Director Alisa brings over 25 years of experience as a program officer to the program design and applied research that ground GiveLove's EcoSan programs. As co-founder of COVOL, she worked with women’s groups and farmers to improve food security, increase household income, and establish the first fair trade shea butter cooperatives in northern Uganda. Alisa holds a B.A. in International Relations from San Francisco State University, a M. SCI. in International Agricultural Development from University of California, Davis, and a M.A. in Cultural Anthropology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She's excited to collaborate with a diverse group of organizations to link EcoSan programs with holistic programming that integrates livelihoods, sustainable land use, food security, and local resiliency in the context of climate change. Samuel Autran Dorado E Souza, Global Research & Training Coordinator Sam joined our international team in February 2016. He has led training programs for GiveLove in Nicaragua, Uganda, Colombia and Kenya, and is researching training methodologies and best practices on compost sanitation systems for rural households and schools. Sam is a PhD candidate in Environmental Education at the Federal University of Rio Grande (Brazil). He also holds a Masters certificate in Development Practice from a joint program between the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro and the Earth Institute at Columbia University (New York). Working as a “Lone Wolf” and compost activist, Sam piloted and self-financed several of his own sanitation projects in Brazil, Uruguay, Cuba, and Ethiopia. Sam brings diverse skills and experience to our team with knowledge of sustainable development, rainwater collection and harvesting, urban agriculture, agroforestry and participatory development.
