The area has shelters and homes, run by Salaam Baalak Trust, an NGO, for street and working children. Since 2007 Salaam Baalak Trust, is running the Salaam Baalak City Walk - New Delhi, a guided tour through Paharganj and New Delhi Railway Station area. The guides are former street children from the trust. The walk aims to sensitize about street life, street children and Indian society problems.
