I am the founder of Oscar Foundation, a non profit aimed at uplifting lives of over 3000 underprivileged children & their families. I have been born & bought up in the famous Cuffe Parade community -Ambedkar Nagar, the same area where the popular author Shantaram spent 8 years of his life. I can give you an insight into the different communities & their lifestyles. I also run another tour called "A walk through Sassoon Docks" which takes you through an amazing experience of Mumbais oldest fishing market.

A fascinating insight into the local community around Cuffe Parade. Ashok's Oscar Foundation are doing amazing work with preschool and school children to enhance their education and encourage them to stay in school, through play, computer lessons & football. It was a privilege to visit the community and learn of the improvements that have been made to people's lives. Please support him by going on a tour.

Ashok does a fantastic job helping out young people from his community and it's inspiring to see him talk about his mission and showing you around. No matter where you're from or what you do, you'll find meaning in his approach to tackle problems that they're dealing with everyday. The Oscar foundation has around 50 employees and they help around 7000 kids through daycare, education and my personal favorite: football. It gives the kids options in life and grow hope and ambition. It was great hearing about it and I wish them all the best!

Was really nice to meet this community with Ashok. He walks through the streets as he know every single person and every single house, what gives a special and personalized touch on this visit. Was also very inspirational meeting Ashok Organization and his work with children.

It was an experience of a life time. I was the only one on a tour with Govind, so I got some extra experience and very friendly feeling from it besides all the magical experience I was shown. I really recommend it to anyone who visit Mumbai. Thank you so much for making my trip!

Mumbai A wonderful morning experience with Ashok who grew up in the Ambedkar Nagar slum in Mumbai just off the Cuffe Parade. He shared his personal story and journey; and introduced us to his family and people thriving running businesses - such as the Dhobi Ghat who run commercial laundry contracts. It was also wonderful to learn about the OSCAR Foundation NGO he set up to inspire and enable other young children to complete their education and dream of a live beyond—using football as a tool for boys and girls. We would have never been able to gain insight into this thriving community without Ashok as our guide. Definitely worth booking!

This tour was really interesting! Ashok took us around the community he grew up in, told us about life there, and taught us about the NGO he started to encourage kids to stay in school. Seeing the laundry space was a highlight. The tour was almost exclusively in the slum area, which was certainly an experience we wouldn’t have had without Ashok!
