Ever interested in how people survive and live their life in slums? This walk is organised by a local NGO and registered non-profit organization called PETE India (Providing Education to Everyone). 100% of the proceeds go to support our projects. Participants will accompany a guide through the maze of small streets and alleys of a 5.5 hectare slum in West Delhi for 2 hours. He will show you how millions of people live their lives in the slums of Delhi each day. While in the slum, you'll have the opportunity (if you wish) to have traditional tea with a family during which they can share their personal story of survival and life in the slums. You will visit the three schools that your donations directly support and meet the students and teachers.The aim of this walk is not to "visit" or make poverty a "tourist attraction", but is to exchange experiences with people, allowing the locals a rare opportunity to interact with foreigners if they wish.

I originally had misgivings about touring peoples lives however having been to delhi before I wanted to see something of people's lives and the programs this NGO is running. I was impressed with the education programs and with my guide. It was name eye opener and something I could. To have experienced without the invitation of my guide to company... More

Honestly, don't miss this! You'll find yourself in the middle of a UNICEF ad in conditions we lucky ones will most likely have never experienced till now. Yet out of this desperate situation springs some of the kindest, most generous and joyous adults and children you could ask to meet. You'll be swarmed by the kids and my advice is... More

Buried a block or two within a fairly normal middle-of-the-run Delhi neighborhood is an incredibly dense and poor slum where the PETE organization tries hard to uplift the lives of the slum's children through academic and trade education. The tour consists of a guided walk thru this slum and I did so on a Sunday morning, which is a pretty... More

Walking through the slum with Aamir, our guide, was a great experience. We met so many friendly and smiling people. The puppet show and magic show were good fun.

I visited here with my family on Christmas Day to help the children. Our guide, Laxmi, had my complete respect and was the most kind-hearted person I have ever met.

My half-day private tour of part of the so-called Kathputli Colony, which is one of the largest slum areas in Delhi, was one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of my recent trip to northern India. The area lies close to Shadipur metro station, extends to around 6.5 acres (2.6ha) and is home to around 30,000 of the poorest... More
