The guided tour expert will take you to the slum area of Kolkata to show how many of the population in Kolkata really live.Currently there are more than 7000 slums in and around Kolkata. We are focusing in one of the slums in Topsia- which is the heart of small scale industries in Kolkata and on the tour we try to show you a wide series of these enterprises .From rubber factories, leather bags, recycling plastic, small bakeries and open air laundry.On your way down you will visit a local kindergarten and you will have the opportunity to be part of the local activities, may be teaching or spending some valuable time with the children that would bring happiness on their face.“Our aim is to show you that a slum is not only about poverty, unpleasantness and deficiency". In the slum our guests get the opportunity to see the gravity, strength, and the venture of the people, where they are able to work and live in the small areas. The objective of the tour is to show the positive side of this community, their culture and how challenging their life is. Slum tours can positively transform both travellers and communities, but one must insist the most immersive and socially responsible experiences.We aim to engage in local projects, initially supporting educational development by providing essential lighted space where children can go and study; cook stoves for individual dwellings and communal kitchens and better access to clean water. In order our tours are sustainable and provide a positive impact on the community, a proportion of our revenues are distributed to communities, directly supporting education, health and well-being for the underprivileged children.
