Leave any preconceptions at the door and prepare to learn how many Delhiites live.

Sanjay Colony is a small slum built on 25 acres of land located in the south of Delhi near the Bahai Lotus Temple and Iskcon temple. Spend a couple of hours walking around and visiting small-scale businesses, a small temple, a mosque and residential areas. Learn about working and residential life and witness how despite the challenging living conditions it remains an area charged with positive energy and strong community. 

By the end of the tour you will understand how our NGO, Reality Gives, is working to support local NGOs and bring its excellent Mumbai programs to Sanjay Colony.

Have extra space in your suitcase? We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase for the projects supported by Reality Gives, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. Please click here to see what supplies are needed for our project/projects.

Kavita was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Her English was great, and she had only been speaking it for 6 months! The tour itself was very humbling and I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to see the reality of how so many people live, that you would never see otherwise.

I’m always slightly sceptical about organisations with names that portray a particular principle or ideal. So, Reality Tours has a lot to live up to.

I’m pleased to report that, from our experience, Reality Tours is indeed authentic, and truly awesome.

Our guide for the Sanjay colony tour was Vijay, who was born and still lives in the colony. His polite demeanor, excellent English and engaging conversation was immediately disarming. A few minutes with Vijay and words like ‘slum’, ‘poverty’ and ‘sad’ evaporated naturally from our minds. No need for political correctness here.

The tour was informative, educational, emotional and uplifting. Naturally, there were some sights, sounds and smells that challenged our senses.

But I don’t want to give too much away here. You need to experience this for yourself. There’s nothing to fear. The smiling children who greet you are different from those you may encounter outside the colony, in a good way.

Towards the end of the tour, we got to see some of the work of the NGO ’Reality Gives’. Seeing the participants engaged in the Youth Empowerment program learning English, life skills and computer skills was particularly inspiring for me.

I encourage you to take this tour, particularly if you’ve been on one of those package tours and subjected to too many shopping experiences. This is the perfect antidote.

The tour to Sanjay Colony was interesting and mind opening. The guide, Sam was informative and knew a lot about the neighborhood and the people that leave in it. I recommend the tour to everyone that want to see another side of Delhi.
