Jacaranda trees add to the beauty of Rwanda, with their feathery leaves and small purple flowers. They are also special in that they grow back after being cut. Artisans use Jacaranda branches to carve these charming little birds, which are similar in size to Rwandan fire finches.
Choose one natural bird ornament, or create a set of three or five birds! They look beautiful clustered against the dark evergreen of a Christmas tree. Please note that the shape of the bird ornaments vary slightly due to the styles of the individual woodcarvers.

Description

In the spring of 1994, the world bore witness to one of the most gruesome genocides in Rwanda. In the aftermath of the war, many children were left orphaned and women widowed. Meeting once a week, the women share their struggles, discuss household concerns and turn to each other for support. They work to put their horrid shared past behind them so they can build a better future for their children.
