I got a chance to visit Viva Rio’s remarkable compound in Bel Air, a slum neighborhood in Port-au-Prince. Their space includes a biogas digester which recycles human waste collected in their public toilets, wetlands for purifying the waste water from the digester, tilapia ponds filled with the reclaimed water, rooftop gardening using recycled tires and organic residue from the biogas digester and more. They also run a youth Capoeira program, which was a treat to see in action.
