A Self Help Groups (SHG) from Dimapur “Donthao” which means “To Grow” in Rongmai dialect has received a contract worth Rs. 13 lakh to deliver various traditional items to nine states. 

The announcement was made by the members of the SHG at the media briefing here on Monday. They will be delivering the traditional items to Jaipur, Mumbai, Kolkatta, Bhopal, Hyderabad, Dehradun, Bangalore, Delhi and Bhubaneshwar within four months period. 

They received the order on June 26 after Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India (Trifed), Guwahati inspected and was satisfied with their products. 

The members of SHG stated that the group was formed in September 3, 2013 comprising of 14 married members with an objective to extend support towards their families and to inculcate work culture. They started the group by collecting Rs. 100 per month each as membership fee. 

Their motive was not to stay idle but start working on traditional attires with a “unique and antique touch” so that the upcoming generation will learn about the values and importance of their respective attires. 

“Donthao” which also focuses on handloom, weaving, bags and ornaments making etc, at the initial stage, used to deliver their products within their locality, former secretary Peijai Kamei said. 

Their hard work was recognised when they were introduced to Toka Multipurpose Corporative Societies (MPCS) Dimapur last year. 

They received a loan at a low interest from Toka MPCS from where they bought raw materials. The group also received a sewing machine from Toka MPCS. 

It may be noted that Toka MPCS is a channelizing agency to support the initiatives and to enhance access to financial services by bridging gaps wherever there are missing markets. 

In regard to time management, Kamei said that every month the members conduct meeting and distributes the work accordingly. 

The group also believed that community participation was important to encourage each other to make a difference in the society.
