Our Mission

Ornaments 4 Orphans is a for-profit, fair trade social enterprise dedicated to providing critical support for orphans and vulnerable children in Africa. We use ethical and sustainable business practices to advance society. We create jobs, fight poverty, preserve intact families, empower communities, and ultimately prevent children from becoming orphans.

The Ornaments

We proudly offer a large selection of fair trade ornaments sourced from around the globe. Each handmade item highlights the traditional craftsmanship and native materials of the region where it is made. We carefully curate a diverse offering of quality ornaments that are suited to a variety of holiday aesthetics, from classic to whimsical to boho-chic.


The Orphans

Now that you know the “Ornaments” part of our mission, we’d like to tell you about the “Orphans”. Up to 70% of these children actually have at least one living parent. However, because of job losses, medical issues, or other circumstances, their parents lack the resources to care for them. As a result, these children are often placed in homes or institutions.

Through fair trade and sustainable community development, Ornaments 4 Orphans assists parents to keep children with them in the home, and to bring back those children who’ve been separated from their families. When you support the parent—by purchasing ornaments yourself, or selling them as a host of the program—you support the child.

Helping Sustain Communities around the World

Ornaments 4 Orphans is proud to offer the creativity and craftsmanship of our artisan partners in countries spanning the globe: Uganda, Kenya, Peru and Nepal. As patrons of these artisans, you’re supporting sustainable jobs in their communities, while improving living conditions and education there.
