About Slum Walks In Delhi (Providing Education To Everyone)
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.

This was one of the highlights of our India trip. From being collected at our hotel to being dropped back at place of our choice we were thoroughly looked after. Our guide of the slum was very informative, the colours, the sights and the smiles of everyone we met are great memories and the smiley happy children we got to spend time with at the school were of course the best bit :) We would highly recommend the tour!

The guides were very friendly and told us a lot about life in the slum. It's good to also see this site of Delhi and the work PETE is doing is just great! It's good to sponsor them in this way. We really recommend this tour. We also felt very safe all the time. Thank you!

When you are traveling to India you are well aware of the living conditions of the great majority of the population. However, doing a slum tour really opens your eyes as it allows you to dig further into this reality. The NGO is a very good organization, our guide was super kind and patience to explain everything that we didn't know and brought us in the true narrows road of a Delhi slum. At the end of the tour you get the option to visit the school (be sure to get some candies before, or even better, fruits) and meet some dozens children smiling at you. Very enriching experience. Thank you.

We were originally reluctant to participate in a ‘slum’ tour as it can be seen as looking down on the poorer more venerable people in society. We were recommended this organisation by a friend who we trusted and was not wrong to do so !!! Sunny our tour guide was so lovely, well fitting and gave us all the info we needed. He instantly made us feel much more comfortable and ensured that we had the best time. He showed us around the slum, we met his friends and neighbours, he seemed a popular guy in the area. Sunny explained much of life living in this part of New Delhi including day to day life and the culture. This was extremely interesting and rewarding to learn from. Later we got bannnas and took them into the school (much smaller than we anticipated) but we were reassured when we met the children and women who were benefitting from the organisation. Overall, it exceeded our expectations. Thanks to sunny, Kathi, all the children and women for our wonderful experiences Alice and jazz :)
