About us

Reality Tours and Travel is the brainchild of Chris Way and Krishna Pujari. Chris hails from the UK but relocated to India in 2004 while Krishna is from Heranjalu, Karnataka but has been living in Mumbai for the past 13 years.

Reality Tours & Travel Pvt Ltd, created in 2005, was set up primarily to show the positive side of the slums and break down its negative stereotypes about its people and residents, and Dharavi in particular.

Using tour revenues, after discussing the community's needs with the Dharavi residents, Chris and Krishna set up a Community Centre in 2007 to provide English and computer classes.

In 2009 they decided to expand on their social work and established their own non-profit organisation that would focus on providing quality education to children from deprived backgrounds.

The charity Reality Gives (formerly Reality Cares) was born based on the long talks they had had with the community in Dharavi, and recognition that there was a need for schooling facilities in the area.

In 2012, Reality Gives decided that there were many other issues in Dharavi besides education that needed addressing and so began to reach out to other NGOs to provide support.
