Women on Wheels Transfer

Many women in India are often marginalized, undeserved, and underprivileged. They have a more challenging time accessing resources such as education, and will be the first in their families to be pulled out of educational institutions when families resources' become limited. Many girls grow to be women that are dependent on their partners to provide income to their households, keeping them in the cycle of vulnerability to be dependent on others and not themselves. WoW provide them with independence.

Transfer by a G Adventures-supported project, Women on Wheels. This program provides safe and reliable transport for travellers, while providing a dignified livelihood for a local woman from a resource poor community.

Day 2 Delhi / Āgra

Enjoy an included walk through the backstreets of Delhi with a young adult taking part in the G Adventures-supported New Delhi Streetkids Project. As a former streetkid, your guide will offer a unique insight into the "real" Delhi. Continue on to Agra for the evening, stopping to visit the Baby Taj en route.
