Every one of our crafted cards is carefully made by hand, is signed on the back by the cardmaker, and incorporates handmade paper which is made by recycling office waste. This makes our cards environmentally friendly, and ensures that we have a large range of colours and textures of paper to work with. At Cards from Africa we are restoring hope to those who are barely surviving, offering well-paid employment to those who need it the most. We provide a stepping-stone for our cardmakers to transition easily to another career or start their own business someday. We provide them with fair trade work that truly embodies better lives.
Visit our online shop to order your fairtrade goods and collect from our shop. We have a selection of items online, but if there is anything else you want to add to your bag, just call or email us.
As a cooperative, with only three paid members of staff, we’re always on the lookout for dedicated and sociable volunteers. We are also looking to expand our voluntary Board of Directors. Get in touch today for more information.
