'Cards from Africa'
These beautiful cards are hand made by orphaned young adults in Rwanda. This inspirational project - fully endorsed by the World Fair Trade Organization - provides well remunerated work to orphaned youths enabling them to care and provide for their younger siblings, thereby preserving family bonds and sparing orphaned children the further pain of separation and institutionalization or abandonment.
Cards are made by hand from recycled local paper (also produced by the project) with each card taking on average some 30 minutes to make. Each card is signed on the back by the person who made it.
Greetings cards will be dispatched by First Class post. If ordering a small number of cards the actual postage and packing costs may be substantially less than the delivery charge applied to your order. In such cases we will refund some of the charge to reflect this.
