Children will be able to spend time in the kitchens to see how the meals are made and packaged and then be part of the distribution drive where they will tangibly see the impact they are making.

The tour covers India's famed ‘Golden Triangle’ which includes the three most visited cities in the country's North-west - Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, roughly forming an  equilateral triangle on a map. This triangle has been aptly been dubbed "golden" for the extraordinary wealth of cultural and historical splendour on offer in each of the three bustling cities.
Jaipur, the capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, is home to magnificent forts and brims with some of Asia's best bazaars. You could spend weeks in Delhi, the sprawling, fascinating Indian capital, admiring the starkly different old and new parts of the city and yet not see it all, while Agra, once the heart of the Moghul empire, boasts of the unparalleled beauty of the Taj Mahal, a spectacular mausoleum adorning the banks of the Yamuna river.

The tour is conducted over five days starting at 9 am and ending at 3:00pm  with each day comprising of a mix of live, interactive tours to exciting places and monuments in the Golden Triangle, informative talks and activity sessions.
