#161: Daniel Tillias and Nancy Young, of Sakala-Haiti

On July 6, 2019, Daniel and Nancy came to Northampton to check out Pedal People refuse collection by bike. We had a fun, exciting day biking around together, going to the Bike Lab, checking out trailers and hitches and compost buckets and all that. Daniel wants to start compost and/or refuse collection by bike in Cite Soleil, Haiti, as part of Sakala, which is a youth empowerment organization that he was instrumental in creating about 15 years ago. They do sports, urban gardens, recycled art, scholarships, and many other things. sakala-haiti.org As I shared with them my excitement about the Trinidad Bicycle Osmosis Project I’m working on, Daniel reminded me often, “You know, Haiti is a lot closer than Trinidad!”
