80% of Reality Tour and Travel profits go back to the community

We believe that tourism can and should be a force for local development. Reality Tours is a social business that uses a profit sharing model to fund our sister-NGO Reality Gives. Eighty percent of our post-tax profits go directly to Reality Gives which runs high quality education programs in areas where Reality Tours works.

By opening their clinic within the slum, the Barefoot Acupuncturists bring a local solution to Dharavi communities. Acupuncture is a worldwide used medicine, recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Through this project, students of the Youth Empowerment Program have the opportunity to improve their English language skills alongside their daily English classes using an interactive mobile application. Students often find that, while they learn a great deal from using English in the classroom, there isn't anyone to help to practise their English at home. However, most students do have access to a mobile phone.

The Girl’s Football Program aims to make it acceptable for girls to play sport within their community, to offer them escapism, fun, the opportunity to compete and the chance to broaden their own personal development. We are proud to be delivering this program in partnership with Nimaya Foundation who assists in providing space for the girls to play and promoting the program throughout Dharavi, and with Oxylane Foundation who provide quality kit and resources to the program.

Conceived in Mumbai's Dharavi slum in February 2009, Project Front Foot (a registered UK charity) is a Kit 4 Kids campaign in two distinct phases: the first to publicise the project and collect cast-off, out-grown and second-hand cricket kit and equipment in the UK; the second to get the kit to Mumbai and then set up and run a series of coaching clinics for the slum children.

We believe that primary education is the most important part of a child’s schooling, as it instils the skills and values that serve as the basis for all future learning. Therefore, we run the Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade within Royal City School, Dharavi. By 2016 we hope to extend this through to fourth grade.

Part of Reality Gives' original vision was to assist teenagers and young adults who have been sidelined or ignored by the mainstream education system, or who are struggling to find employment. So, maintaining our passion for quality education, we started a project to design materials tailored for this exact purpose and the Youth Empowerment Program was born.
