FINISH Society has been partnering with ITC Mission Sunehra Kal for over 3 years now in thematic interventions comprising sanitation, school WASH and solid waste management. Happily, the partnership has steadily expanded and now spans ITC Mission Su nehra Kal's interventions in four states. FIINISH Society brings strong community mobilisation ability, knowledge and commitment to the table. Specifically, commendable has been their rapid internalisation of ITC's decentralised community led solid waste m anagement approach and thereafter its effective roll out in the project areas. I would like to congratulate FINISH Society on their 10th Anniversary and look forward to a continued successful partnership in the times ahead.

I would like to congratulate the entire FINISH Society team on completing 10 very successful and impactful years in the development sector. This will be the 4thconsecutive year of our association with you. On this occasion, I get reminded of those days when we started our projects with you. We had to spend long hours in the sun to educate the community about the ill effects of open defecation and also the early morning follow ups with the team. It has been a remarkable journey so far. Thank You FINISH team for being a partner in Tata Power’s efforts to make this world a better place and sharing our vision of overall development of the poor and underprivileged.

My association with FINISH is almost from the date it was planned rather than born. After taking shape, the organisation initially focused on Decentralised Household sanitation. The main issue with sanitation systems as being practiced in various parts of India was that they mig ht have a sanitation system but need not necessarily be a safe and sustainable sanitation system. So FINISH opted to avoid the pitfalls on focusing just on ensuring that there are sanitation systems in place but SAFE sanitation systems from the word go. Th is makes FINISH very different from other organisations and institutions working in the field. Once the first step of sanitation was covered quite well, the organisation diversified in to Liquid Waste Management, setting up treatment plants for open draina ge to improve the quality of the receiving water body. Other diversified area was getting in to Municipal Solid Waste Management and Septage Management. Integrating the two to arrive at an integrated Waste Management System.

More than the thought leaders of the FINISH initiative who did a commendable job to keep the momentum going with innovative ideas and gutsy determination -my admiration is for the younger generation who left relatively well-paying jobs in the private sector and chose to follow their leader with commitment, dedication and zeal for an unproven social enterprise. To the best of my knowledge, this is unparalleled in corporate history: although there are several casesof individuals who have left senior management to set up organic farming or to support social causes, these have invariably been people who have made their millions –not a group of young, idealistic middle management and junior executive level bunch withthe usual challenges of providing for their families, children and retirement. And to have stuck it out for 10 difficult years, growing a fledgling enterprise, taking on the challenge of working with governments, and of cajoling CSR funding is a fantastic achievement

M. Subburaman | Consultant & Director, SCOPE

FINISH Society has been doing great work in the water and sanitation sector for the past 10 years and I am proud to have worked with them. Around 10 years ago, in TN and in India, there was little knowledge or awareness among the local population about sanitation.

Another remarkable achievement was the creation of Learning Guides for stakeholders, containing basic and practical details of how to build a toilet, what kind of toilets are environmentally safe , how much space is required, what kinds of materials, and in what quantities, will be needed, and the Dos and Don’ts of constructing toilets. Such a thorough examination of critical issues in sanitation was unique and proved very useful for all the villag ers who were informed about these details via the FINISH field teams. This was a remarkable achievement and made FINISH a pioneer in the field of sanitation and hygiene in India.

FINISH brings in absolute professionalism to the work they undertake. They do a splendid job of quality and professional work. FINISH is led by dynamic and inspired leadership-Mr Abhijit Banerji is full of passion and is a visionary. He leads from the front and built a highly motivated team of true professionals who are very dedicated and devoted to serving the society-especially the poor, needy and the women.  Through my multiple interactions I have found that FINISH is always striving for innovative and creative solutions right from designing, delivery and execution of the tasks and activities. FINISH demonstrates absolute transparency and accountability to the entire process of budgeting and funds utilisation. FINISH is a Centre of Excellence in the field of Social Projects and it is a delight to work with them.
