chris pageChris Page has a vision for the people of Rwanda. The people of St. Barnabas are united with him in his mission.

Chris was inspired to set up Cards from Africa by a Kenyan doctor who had started a similar endeavor to generate income for women in a Nairobian slum. Chris teamed up with Rwandan artist Gabriel Dusabe and together they learned how to make paper and create simple card prototypes. Their first employee was a young orphaned woman named Ariette. After one month's time they asked her to bring another friend to train but she brought two! Shortly after, twenty more orphaned youth were trained and the business was born. Their profits are continually reinvested into company operations as well as the lives of their staff. Their hope is to grow to provide steady employment to 300 orphaned young people in Rwanda and to provide a model for sustainable job creation in Africa.
