An amazing tour run by a young person who has been helped by the trust. We went as part of the G Adventures Golden Triangle tour. Able to explore parts of New Delhi which are truly local in a safe manor. Very interesting to learn about the trust and its work. Would've appreciated a little bit more on the history of the area as well.

A truly insightful walk around the Delhi railway station area,with two young guides fromthe Trust. We met as agreed by the railstation , and then spent over two hours walking around the area with the guides explaining the life of a Street Child in India. They also explained how the Trust helped many children and their families on a daily basis. They told their own life stories, heart breaking, but also their plans for a brighter future, which the Trust will give them the education and confidence they will require !!! Makes you realise how lucky you are. Recommend you go and support the Trust

This is a 2-3 hour walking tour that is led by kids who have been rescued by the Salaam Balak Trust. The insight into the lives of lost and homeless children in India is heartbreaking, but what this organization is doing to change lives is inspiring. I wish I could remember the name of the girl who gave us our tour - she was so articulate and sweet, and she shared with us the stories of kids on the street, as well as her own story. The walk is an experience well-worth having - we left it feeling sad to some extent, but also very hopeful for the future of these kids.

The best thing I did in Delhi, and one of the highlights of all of India. You get to find the hidden gems and history of Delhi, some great street food that is safe for your belly, and a lovely experience learning about salam balak. Can not recommend enough
