About Porgai by The Tribal Health Initiative

“ Porgai” meaning pride in the  Lambadi dialect, signifies the spirit of the entire programme. Tribal Health Initiative (THI) is a non profit organisation located in the Sittilingi valley in Dharmapuri district, Tamil Nadu. It works for the welfare of the local community who are predominantly Malavasi tribals.


Porgai strongly believes in the following  :

The artisan is central to the craft and is respected

The artisan receives a fair share for their time and skill

By buying a Porgoi piece, you are :

Empowering the Lambadi women to earn their income

Reviving a dying traditional craft

Encouraging future generations to take pride in their culture
