Project Description

Manas is a World Heritage site located in the foothills of Bhutan in the District of Baksa. Manas National Park, Assam. The people in the fringe villages are economically backward. Poverty compels these people to bank heavily on forest resources found in Manas National Park for their livelihood which is found detrimental to conservation initiatives in the Park. In order to show the way for an alternative livelihood option not dependent on forest resources, Aaranyak has been working with the fringe villagers to build their capacity for alternative sustainable livelihood options in sectors like weaving, mushroom farming, bee-keeping food processing, and preservation.

Hence, in order to make the artisans competitive, self-sustainable and also able to gain economic benefit, Aaranyak planned to help the artisans having traditional skills to get organized into clusters under this SFURTI scheme. In addition, this project is aimed at building the capacity of the targeted artisans of this cluster and equipping them with improved skills, technologies, tools, and equipment. It is planned to provide the artisans with market linkage through this cluster and strengthen their governance & fiscal systems to cope with challenges and opportunities.
Manas National Park, the core area of Manas Tiger Reserve is located in foothills of the Himalayas at 26⁰35'-25⁰50'N, 90⁰45'-91⁰15'E and is contiguous with Royal Manas National Park, Bhutan. There are three ranges - Panbari, Bansbari, and Bhuyanpara in Manas National Park. There are 62 fringe villages along the southern boundary of Manas National Park. Under SFURTI we have covered 251 artisans from eight revenue villages under the Baksa district adjacent to the Bhuyanpara area of Manas National Park. The villages are Borgaon, Majrabari, Karebari, Kumguri, Bhuyanpara, Saru Ghagra, Ghoramara, and  Akarah.
The Manas Traditional Dress Cluster produces many items like - Aronia, Gamocha, Stole, Shawl, Dupatta, Dokhona, Bed Sheel, Pillow cover, Ladies Kurti, Shirt Rapper, Eri Stole and Eri shawl. Most of the time, the cluster artisans are involved in producing Aronai Sadar, Dokhona, and Gamucha.
Total annual sales of the cluster units stand at Rs 64,00,000/. It is found that all products produced in the cluster have been sold out.
