City Walk

The Salaam Baalak Trust Delhi City Walk is an English-guided tour of almost two hours conducted by the children who used to live in the streets of Delhi before joining our Trust. Our guides are adolescents who have been fully trained as local guides and who want to improve their communication and speaking skills. City Walk gets the children's stories heard and gives people a view of their world through their eyes. Led by a teenager at the Trust, the City Walk tour covers the streets of the inner city of Paharganj and the area around New Delhi Railway Station. The respective child is someone who once lived and worked on the streets. This makes the tour special and personal for the tour guide. You will experience a tour far from the typical and touristy places and cover lesser-known attractions. City Walk is an example of how a volunteer's creativity can translate into a unique and enduring programme, which is both popular and economically viable. Over the last 19 years, thousands have taken the Walk and empowered several children, thus helping them to join mainstream life.

There are currently three walks offered by Salaam Baalak Trust Delhi:
