Interesting volunteering opportunity at Dhonk

[I am a supporter of Dhonk. Run by Divya Shrivastava. I came to know about the organization when I attended a workshop organized by Tiger Watch, again based out of Sawai Madhopur ]

Dhonk is a social enterprise based out of Sawai Madhopur. We support women around Ranthambhore, Rajasthan by providing opportunities in various handicraft activities. This winter, we have started a pilot initiative to support women, who have been victims of domestic violence. Women who are part of this initiative make toys and are also capable of picking up other crafts. We are looking for volunteers who are involved in toy making or similar crafts and are willing to train others on these skills.

Details of volunteering opportunities

Duration of the stay would be around 15-20 days. Dhonk will provide basic accommodation facilities to the volunteer. Even though there will be no remuneration to the volunteer, the beautiful weather at Ranthambhore will be available to the volunteers free of cost and all round the day. The volunteering opportunity is open till Feburary-March; the period till December, however, is the peak tourist season and this is when you can make the maximum impact.
