Dastkar Ranthambore is an initiative of Dastkar and Ranthambore Foundation to resettle communities in the Sawai Madhopur area of Rajasthan, who had lost access to wood, water, and farming lands due to the creation of Ranthambore National Park.
The Ranthambore Foundation approached Dastkar in late 1980s to initiate income generation activities particularly among women in the area. The organisation now works with over 300 women artisans in the villages around Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. The artisans also form part of the board of DR.
Dastkar’s distinctive Tiger motif & use of trees, birds & animal imagery demonstrates the communities concern for the natural environment & in particular, the endangered Tiger species found in the area. DR also has an effluent treatment plant on campus that treats pollutants discharged from the dyeing and printing activities
