In Episode 2 of the Impact India podcast, I sit down with Fahim Vora, co-founder of Be the Local tours, outside Mahim Junction railway station in Mumbai on a couple of parked scooties.
Be the Local Tours is a Mumbai-based tour company that trains and employs marginalized students from Dharavi, the infamous slum area of India. Fahim dives into his journey of becoming an entrepreneur as a marginalized man in Mumbai having been born and raised in Dharavi.
Tune in to hear:
- Fahim’s story growing up in Dharavi
