This beautiful slum has opened up several small scaled businesses such as pottery, weaving, craftsmen, bakery businesses, salons, papad making, etc. It feels proud to witness the diversity among which lives the residents of this slum. They belong to different castes, religions and
speak varied languages but they share the common feeling of love and togetherness.  

This slum produces a variety of products and services. With the development the nation is witnessing post independence, there have been several programs and projects undertaken to improvise the situation. Numerous cleanliness drives are hosted to spread awareness about sanitation. Many NGOs have come forward to organize workshops to educate the people about the intensity of issues like education, health, employment, etc.   

With the message of Dharavi’s talent and creativeness spreading so rapidly, it has been welcoming large number of visitors every year. Dharavi sets an example of how toiling your sweat out, can elevate you to conquer the height of your dreams. 

Thus it is extremely important that schools organize these tours to show the children the reality of life. This often inculcates in them a sense of satisfaction and contentment. A day long tour is sufficient to paint before you the conditions in which they slog to make a living.
