Write from the heart in our handmade cards from Thailand, Rwanda, and Bangladesh.
Cards from Africa work with young adults orphaned by disease in Rwanda. Cards from Africa are restoring hope to those who are barely surviving, offering well-paid employment to those who need it the most. They provide a stepping-stone for our cardmakers to transition easily to another career or start their own business someday.

Denur Crafts is a small group of people (mainly women), living in Kenya, who produce native handicrafts and jewelry. Denur employ people who need a source of income in order to pay school costs for their children and to raise the standard of living of their family. Women with children, who find themselves jobless, are given first priority. Every couple of years, Leah from Denur Crafts visits our shop with a suitcase stuffed with handmade Jewellery. Every time we sell an item of Denur jewellery, we know that it’s going towards a child’s education. That’s a great feeling to have.
