DESCRIPTION

This experience will take you to a small slum in Delhi, called Sanjay Colony. A unique way of meeting and interacting with this community and give back. We will meet at Connaught Place and set out by metro. After a 40-minute we will get off and we will meet the people of the small slum.

We will walk through a maze of narrow streets where you will meet the enterprising residents and their small-scale industries. We will first stop by a clothes recycling-and-manufacturing business where you can see how materials are separated. You get insights into the clothing factories where many families work to make the finished items.

After this visit we will see a small Hindu temple where you can hear about the importance of religion in the residents’ lives. Then continuing our walk to a local families home that will give you a further understanding of daily life in the slum and where you can engage in an informative conversation with a family.

Enjoy a stunning rooftop view of Sanjay Colony before ending at a small school. Here you can see the positive contribution that proceeds from the tour make in the community.

Location


I was very hesitant to take this type of tour but it allowed me to see how much of a community these residents are and how hardworking.

In fact, you might want to consider it a must to open your eyes. I
