About Dhonk
Dhonk is a private company which is making handicrafts in and
around Ranthambhore.

It aims to provide a sustainable livelihood to people living near


about Ranthambhore.

Dhonk’s objective is to promote raw local talent and bring out


the colors of Rajasthan for the consumer.

Dhonk is a blend of ethnic and modernistic fashion, giving the


best of both the worlds to the buyer.

It is focused on achieving perfection steadily to bring maximum


joy for its patrons.
Dhonk in Conservation
Tiger Watch an NGO in Ranthambhore has been working on the
anti-poaching and reform of a traditional poaching community -
Mogya.

The reform program includes giving alternate livelihood to the


ex-poachers families, under this several Mogya 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.

Dhonk is hence born out of the need to give sustainable living to


the Ex-poacher’s family and also to the people living in the park
periphery who earn their income from cattle grazing inside the
forest or with illegal wood cutting.
Why Dhonk?

Dhonk (Anogeissus pendula) is


the tree of the dry deciduous
forest of Rajasthan. It is the
clothing of the oldest hill range –
Aravalli... Our products come
from the Aravalli range hence
we chose the name Dhonk for
the enterprise.

As the season changes the


colour of the Dhonk changes.
..Dhonk gives Cover to the Tiger
and Fodder to the Ungulates ..
Similarly our Dhonk gives
funding support for the tigers
conservation and alternative
employment options to the ex-
poachers families and villagers
who are the tigers neighbours,
thus creating good will.
The Supporters of Dhonk -
