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.

One of the highlights of our trip

Walking through the slum with Aamir, our guide, was a great experience. We met so many friendly and smiling people. The puppet show and magic show were good fun.

I visited here with my family on Christmas Day to help the children. Our guide, Laxmi, had my complete respect and was the most kind-hearted person I have ever met. There were two things on this tour that really made me feel touched. 1- There was a young girl, my age, her name was jyoti. She has a massive lump... More

My half-day private tour of part of the so-called Kathputli Colony, which is one of the largest slum areas in Delhi, was one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of my recent trip to northern India. The area lies close to Shadipur metro station, extends to around 6.5 acres (2.6ha) and is home to around 30,000 of the poorest... More

We had trouble with this "company" for two other tours so I would not suggest booking the food walk or city tour with Shiva at Peteforindiatravel However the slum walk is given by Laxmi and her 20 year old daughter and a young man. All three of these people are divine lovely people to meet. They are kind and well... More

I visited in November with a friend and Lakshmi, who is the social worker for the slums, took us round showing us all the empowerment projects for women that they are implementing in the slums.

I went for a private slum walk with my friend and our guide Laixma. We met the people and talk to them. We saw their living situation and the facilities PETE provides. Why do I recommend a slum walk with PETE? I was looking for a charity organisation that I can support in India. I wanted to know what they... More
