About Salaam Baalak Trust

When I visited Delhi in 2013 I went on a Salaam Baalak Trust City Walk.

Salaam Baalak Trust was set up 28 years ago by Indian celebrities to provide shelter, food and medical help to the street kids that lived around the main railway station. Children arrive daily from all over India having stowed away on trains, running away from home, wanting to be in Bollywood, being abandoned or even just being lost in the crowds of one of the huge festivals they have there.

Salaam Baalak do city walks that are guided by the ex street-kids that now work in the charity. They take visitors around to show them the places they lived in when they lived on the streets themselves. Our guide was in his early twenties. He was abandoned at a mosque as a baby and the Imam gave him to a childless family to look after. They were subsidised through the mosque funds. He was abused however. He said that his foster mother rubbed chilli into his eyes. At seven he ran away and started living on the streets. Salaam Baalak picked him up and he now views them as his family. He was learning to code when I met him…

I was really moved by this and now that I am organising walks I thought it would be good to run a charity walk in central London (routes to be published) and gather as many people as possible to donate towards the Salaam Baalak Trust.
