Would you be happy to know, that when you visit India with us,
you also help to solve local problems?
Travel with a twist: Visit and make a difference!
You are about to travel to a country, where poverty is an everyday experience. I’m sure you heard about it a lot. Many find it confusing to travel to India. Huge monuments, the beauty of the landscapes, gold, art, colors, culture – right next to the reality of millions of people that live in deep poverty.
We don’t want to show you the “photoshopped” India, but the real India.
We believe in responsible traveling.
We believe, that when we travel so far, to such a different culture, we shouldn’t only enjoy the colorful experiences that it provides. We should also participate in making it a better place. We chose to help the next generation to live a better life. Street kids have a difficult life, and we believe that everyone deserves a chance for a better life.
This is why 100% of all net profits at Smile India Tours will be donated to Salaam Baalak Trust, a charity that does an amazing work helping street kids. They give kids education, company, experiences… But first of all: HOPE for a better future.
You will get the chance to experience the joy of helping, the happiness of spreading the smile. The clients on the Group Tour will be present when the donations are made at the offices of the Charity.
Some of the street children will guide us on a street walk, where they will tell us about their experiences of life on the streets of Delhi. Some say it is an eye-opening, life-changing experience (and also safe!).
Their stories are sometimes confronting, but also full of hope for their future, thanks to the good work being done by the Salaam Baalak Trust.
And thanks to you too.
