STORE REVIEW :: Dhonk Craft, Ranthambore

Friday, January 16, 2015


During our last trip to Rajasthan, we visited Ranthambore. There, through some references I was introduced to Dhonk. It is beautiful initiative. 
Dhonk Craft is a responsible private organization making handicrafts in and around Ranthambhore with the ex-poachers families and local villagers. By providing craft training to the villagers living around the Ranthambhore National park Dhonk craft is creating useful employment opportunities to the locals and the ex-poachers families. Dhonk also encourages artisans across the globe to come and interact with these groups and exchange ideas and craft skills. Dhonk Craft is a platform for such artisans and local communities living around the tiger forest where they can mutually benefit and learn. 
Dhonk Craft products range from furnishing to apparels and are appreciated by a wide range of consumers belonging to all age groups. 




The monetary returns from Dhonk help in managing Tiger Watch. Tiger watch is a Non Government, Nonprofit organization working in Ranthambhore since 11 years for wildlife and tiger conservation. In addition to research and monitoring of wildlife, its primary work has been anti-poaching and reform of a traditional poaching community – Mogya tribe.
The reform program includes giving alternate livelihood to the ex-poachers families. Under this several Mogya tribe women were trained on handicraft work.
Since Tiger Watch is not into any business venturing, it was time to hand over to an organization, which could take these products to the world market.
