Learn about Sanjay and celebrate the Festival of Lights with the community.
Diwali is Hinduism biggest festival and it is certainly the brightest as well. This Diwali we have a very special tour planned. First we’ll take a few hours to learn about working and residential life in Sanjay on our tour.
Then we’ll head out to light some oil lamps and some sparklers and witness the celebrations. Finally we’ll have some traditional sweets at a local family’s home, learn more about Diwali, and make some rangoli designs.
Our mission is to improve the quality of lives in our communities. Like all of our tours, 80% of the profits fund our NGO Reality Gives and our partner NGOs. Thank you for supporting our programs by signing up for the tour!
