Recycled Rara Christmas Ornaments - Set of 3
This festive trio summons holiday cheer from some very unconventional sources! Made with packaging materials recycled from the streets of Haiti, the bright color and classic holiday shapes -- heart, tree, and star -- will enliven your Christmas tree year after year.
In the spirit of traditional Haitian rara bands -- who create instruments from coffee cans and other discarded items to play in street festivals -- each delightful ornament is handmade by artisans in Haiti out of recycled materials as part of the RARA project. The RARA Project helps underprivileged Haitian women generate income to provide for their families, and trains them in skills such as sewing and weaving, all while promoting environmental responsibility.
Each purchase provides an extra donation to GROW -- Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide. Through this program girls in developing countries are provided the opportunity to attend secondary school, in turn providing them with a economically better, healthier future.
