Come Up Higher Christian Gifts & Books now carries Fair Trade Items from the Jicaro Project. These handcrafts are made by enterprising women and youth in Granada, Nicaragua. Proceeds help to support struggling families and young artisans, providing funds for food, education, community improvement and youth clubs like Vida Joven. Each item combines quality handwork with found or reclaimed objects to transform available resources into creations of beauty and utility. Jicaro trees thrive in Nicaragua where fallen fruit help to feed grazing animals during the long dry season. We carve them into beautiful bracelets, earrings, candles, ornaments and bowls.
Please visit our Fair Trade Products page to look at this beautiful collection of handcrafted goods. Your support is vital for these families! Thank you so much for your continued interest and support.
