We believe that where you start in life should not determine where you finish. By providing quality educational programs and experiences to the children and youth of the communities we work in, we aim to equip them with the tools they need to achieve their potential and to break free from the cycle of poverty.
Through our unique relationship with our sister organisation Reality
Tours and Travel, we are uniquely placed as an NGO to access resources. Every day we are able to connect with socially minded individuals coming through Dharavi, who, upon completion of a tour are often inspired to create change for our communities.
Reality Tours and Travel started its operations in Dharavi in January 2006. Since then, most of the work of the Reality Group has been for the benefit of the Dharavi community. However, as Reality Tours and Travel expands its tours Delhi and multi-day tours of Kerala and Rajasthan we are also expanding our projects to local communities in these areas.
Many projects we support can easily be expanded to other areas of Mumbai, and India,
which Reality Tours does not visit on its tours, but where similar communities face similar problems.
We seek to grow beyond our own physical boundaries by open sourcing our expertly designed curricula with other NGOs running similar programs.
Our successes come from the collaborative efforts of many dedicated people and organisations. Here are some of them:
