These lovable cards are made by at-risk teenagers in a special Kenyan co-op dedicated to turning people's lives around through art and education. The cards are a feel-good product from start to finish.

Jarida Crafts is a social enterprise that employs a variety of teenage individuals, including drop-outs, young mothers, and street youth, to create handcrafted recycled note cards. While their circumstances might vary they all have one thing in common: creativity and their desire to share their art with others.

 
Not only does Jarida Crafts employee an at risk demographic, but takes it one step farther by offering classes to help shape their lives. Jarida has introduced sports to keep teenagers from getting into trouble after hours, held seminars about the dangers of unsafe sex and drugs, and taught classes to introduce a variety of other crafts to help participants gain life-long skills.
