'Birthday Boutique' card - a wonderfully pink birthday card with a pink dress on a dress stand, along with a pink handbag and the message 'Happy Birthday'!
Lovingly handcrafted in Rwanda by young people who have been orphaned by genocide or disease. Thirty minutes is the average time it takes to make one of these cards, so every time you buy one you are making a direct difference to families affected by AIDS and war. Cards from Africa exclusively employ orphan heads of households in Rwanda, who must provide for their younger siblings. The jobs you help to create make it possible for young people to break the cycle of poverty.
All the paper is handmade from local Rwandan office waste, making it environmentally sustainable as well
Every card is signed by its maker!
Inside is blank, for your own message.

Can greetings cards change lives? We believe they can.
Every cardmaker we employ has a story of hope and personal triumph.
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.
