Supporting orphaned youths in Rwanda: How you can help

Here are Cards from Africa to tell you a little about their wonderful project. It is truly inspirational and far from the poor me charity model

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for orphaned youth in Rwanda.

We provide them with employment handcrafting greeting cards that truly embody better lives. Our staff receive fair wages and valuable life skills while our customers are delivered excellence.

The cards

The cards are wel lpriced ( from £2.99) for handmade environmentally firnedly cards and i think they are fabulous. this one is my favourites:

Touch the Sky

Always reach for the sky–or swing your way there!

Our “Touch the Sky” card is lovingly handcrafted in Rwanda by young people who have been orphaned by genocide or disease. All the paper is handmade from local Rwandan office waste, making it environmentally sustainable, too. Envelope included.

In order to help you could buy cards, sell them or just send the page link to some freidns. it is a wonderful product and cause.

Value Base

We believe that all people are precious and that we must do more than provide jobs: we must take care of the entire person. As a result, we take a holistic approach to employment. For example, we spend 30 minutes at the beginning of each day with our staff discussing practical, spiritual, and emotional issues affecting their lives. The life skills acquired from these discussions have proven to be invaluable to their growth

Thanks Cards from Africa Good luck with your project!
