Javed lives in Dharavi with his family. His family moved to Mumbai from Uttar Pradesh in 1975. He loves being a tour guide because he feels he can improve his English and communication skills from this job and he also enjoys meeting new people every day.
Before working as a guide for Reality Tours and Travel, he used to work in a warehouse for medical equipment and also as an office boy. He studied in a Hindi and Urdu medium government school until the 12th grade. He is a former student of our NGO Reality Gives where he learnt English, life skills and computers. In his spare time he likes to play chess and spend time with family and friends. His biggest dream is to buy a house for him and his family.
