We are incredibly lucky as this month we have a special, guest blog post written by Anne Milne. Earlier this year, Anne and Gordon Milne visited some of our sanitation projects in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. They also opened our brand new ecosan toilet block at Periya Nargunam Middle School. In this post, Anne shares her experiences of the visit.

Anne is a senior education practitioner and Gordon is former headmaster of Falcons School for Boys in Richmond. Falcons School for Boys has been a huge supporter of Sanitation First for the past 5 years and over this time has donated approx £50,000 to our work. The visit this year was therefore a long awaited opportunity for Anne and Gordon to see our sanitation projects in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.
