    Known to many as ‘one of the largest slums in Asia’, we prefer to think of Dharavi as Mumbai’s beating heart. It houses about one million of Mumbai’s inhabitants and its industries have an annual turnover of approximately US$ 665 million. Through our educational walking tours, visitors experience a wide range of these business activities: recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom-making and many more. We’ll also visit the residential areas and get a glimpse of street art in Dharavi. People from all over India have come to live in Dharavi, making it a microcosm of India. This diversity is apparent in the murals, temples, mosques, churches and pagodas that stand side by side.

I joined a small group of foreigners on this most amazing tour, expertly guided by Sabina, a fairly new tour guide who hails from the slum herself. Sabina is very knowledgeable about so many aspects of the slum. She took us to see the plastic recycling businesses that employ and

We signed up for this slum tour because of the street art, but the best part was the tour of the slums themselves. This same company’s tour without the street art is probably just as good because with the street art included we were really tired. That all said, our tour guide,

It's a fine line to organise these tours, weather it becomes voyeurism or something of which the informative, insight creating aspects overweigh, that my change peoples way of thinking and create a sensitivity for the social structure of Dharavi and the fact that our global
