Reality Tours and Travel

By taking tourists to visit Dharavi, one of Asia’s largest slums, Reality Tours & Travel breaks down negative stereotypes and shows visitors how the area is the heart of small-scale industries like embroidery and leather tanning in Mumbai. 80% of the company’s profits go to development projects through its sister NGO, Reality Gives, which range from computer classes to a girls football program, and I Was a Sari, a women’s empowerment scheme that turns old saris into designer products. In the seven years since it started Reality Tours & Travel has spent US$134,000 on such projects, and recently expanded to working in New Delhi with the Sanjay Colony slum as well.
