VISIT THE INDIAN CRAFT CENTRE THAT'S TURNING THE TIDE ON TIGER POACHING
Crafting a way out of poverty.
In the spectacular state of Rajasthan you'll find one of the finest national parks in all of India, boasting bears, cheetahs and the majestic bengal tiger. But with exotic animals comes poaching. Be part of the fight against this harmful trade by visiting the remarkable craft centre of Dhonk, a training institute that gives the locals invaluable skills in handicraft making. Dhonk makes the link between poaching and a lack of economic opportunities for the local people. By hiring and giving skills training to the wives of ex-poachers, it supports families who have been removed from Ranthamore National Park. You'll have the opportunity to purchase gorgeous handmade items at a fairtrade price, while doing your bit to save India's magnificent national animal.
