Find out more about the artisans who make these ornaments!

These handcrafted bright and beautiful paper star ornaments will add the perfect pop of color to your Christmas tree!

The women in the Ila Joi program, at FMSC food partner Chances for Children in Haiti, use discarded materials such as cereal and cardboard boxes, and trash paper to create these beautiful “upcycled” ornaments. Not only are these women cleaning up the Haitian landscape with their recycling efforts, they are also bringing new hope to their families by earning the means to pay for their children’s food, shelter, and education. This means fewer orphans, minimized crime, less garbage, relieved stress, and a whole lot more beauty!

Chances for Children works to help Haitian families stay together. Skill development, employment and business development address the needs of families suffering from extreme poverty before they are at the point of desperation: driven to give their children to an orphanage for the sake of their survival. Chances for Children established Ila Joi as a catalyst to accomplish this purpose and to empower women to earn an income and keep their families together.
