Hi, my name is Shiva.
I run a non-profit organization that aims to establish a school system that teaches children the basic principles of reading, writing and arithmetic. We want students to understand that “knowledge is power”. Our vision is to build a team of teachers that are passionate about knowledge and are committed to understanding every person and child.

I've interacted with people from 85 countries in 4 years.
People say I'm open minded, relaxed, and easy going. I love to travel and meet people. I’d be proud to help you experience Indian hospitality and to explore life in the Indian slums.

    This was a fantastic experience! Shiva is very knowledgeable about the community and the people there, as he runs a nonprofit in the area. The locals were extremely friendly and did not try to pressure any sales or similar tactics that can be expected from tourist experiences elsewhere in India. I also want to credit Shiva for giving me the full 2 hours of the experience despite the fact that I had gone to the wrong station and showed up late. Overall, a very unique experience that could not easily be found on my own or found through other routes. Thank you!

    This was a fascinating experience, certainly not something you could ever effectively do on your own! John, our host, was full of information, and the people we met were kinds and welcoming. Make sure to wear good walking shoes.

    とても親切なホスト(団体代表)の方が団体やスラムの概要を説明してくださり、
    その後、スラムに精通していらっしゃる女性が案内してくださいました。
    様々な言語・文化で住み分けられたスラムのことを細部まで非常に分かりやすく説明していただき、たいへん満足し、かつ安心でした。
    スラムの中での様々な出会いもあるので、真のインドの一端に触れることができ、おすすめです。

    So nice hosts,they explained us in details about the people and life styles, their religions, languages, hometown, and so on. I really appreciate your help to get to know about the India and its slum. Many precious encounts were also there. Thank you so much.
