Walking around the neighbourhood, being told the tough truth about living in these streets as a kid - was hard, but an amazing experience. Junaid, our guide, took us for a good walk explaining different elements of the neighbourhood, how you end up living there,...More

The most incredible experience ever. We attended the city walk with our two children, ages 9 and 12, led by Lalit. It was an eye-opening experience to hear and see the stories of India's street children and their survival. Although the walk was unsettling at...More

Get ready to have your heart ripped right out of your chest. To hear the stories of life on Delhi's mean streets from its most vulnerable is almost unbearable. There so many people living on the edge in this country, sadly many of them children,...More

Very unique walking tour through the back streets of New Delhi with former street kids, going into streets and alleyways that most tourists wouldn't venture into. Definitely takes you into places that other tourist guides wouldn't take you. It can be heatbreaking to see how...More

We are travelling across the north of India in Dec/Jan. I have had two voluntary work trips to India and now that I have a family, I want them to not only have my stories to go on, but to see the type of work and the surroundings I worked in first hand. My children will be 9 and 6 by then. Do you think this activity is suitable (lengthwise particularly, for the amount of walking in the heat etc) for my children's age range? Thanks in advance, Ashley

Hello. I'd strongly recommend a good tip if you are happy with the walk. The three of us went all out because Lalit went above and beyond what we'd anticipated. He was overwhelmed and we were happy. So, yes. I'd encourage... More

I have booked a tour next week and wonder if there is anything I can bring with me to donate to the Trust (books, toys, pencils , erasers etc) or would a cash donation be of better use.
