The Activity

HIGHLIGHTS

  • This is a real local experience that will astonish you
  • A former street kid will take you on a journey through an ordinary day of a homeless child
  • Support the Indian street kids directly by taking this tour
  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Maximum number of participants is 5

For two hours you will go on a journey through the enchanting streets of the inner city of Paharganj and the area around New Delhi railway station, with a child who was once living and working on the streets. You will get a glimpse of the daily street life as you are passing recycling shops, a pottery market, temples and much more.

DESCRIPTION

The child has been fully trained as a local guide. It's a unique way of providing an insight into the lives of these children and an opportunity for them to improve their communication and speaking skills. They will share their personal story; explain to you how street children comb train carriages for trash and how they survive on the street.

It’s a unique way of engaging people in the lives of children in distress. Often people don’t get in touch with poverty and the real problems Indian society is facing. During this walk you will get to know another side of Delhi - why children run away from home, how they learn to survive on the street, how they enjoy their life on the street because they are independent, and how eventually they can choose their future over this freedom. Some of the children have taken the opportunity to change their lives and now they are going to university, studying different languages, working as professional photographers or, for example, as tour guides for this walk.

The walk hopes to raise awareness about street children and help to provide a deeper insight about street life from people who have experienced it themselves. All proceeds go directly to the trust to enable more opportunities to be made for street children so the walk is 100% non-profit.

The walks are monday to saturday and are starting at 10 am.

Price includes:

  • English speaking guide
  • 2-hour guided walk

Price excludes:

  • Drinks

Meet Ajay and team

Ask a question

My name is Ajay and I am originally from Mumbai. When I was seven years old, I got lost during a big festival. I spent my childhood on the street and went to jail twice because I did a lot of pick pocketing. After coming to Delhi, I joined SBT in 2005. When I joined SBT, I couldn’t read or write but now I am a high school student. In September 2010, I was enrolled in the program, as I wanted to improve my English. I have learnt a lot from this program and love meeting new people on the walk every day. Since childhood I wanted to become a train driver but the exposure I got from City Walk has inspired me to visit the USA and explore more opportunities.

I'd been to Delhi before but this was a completely different experience. It was really humbling to hear about the work of this organisation and how much they are doing to help the many street kids of Delhi. I also got to see a part of the city I'd never roamed around before. Definitely an experience to remember and treasure - highly recommended!
