many more cards and products here: http://www.jimma-banana-art.com/cards.html


Jimma Banana Art (JBA) is a project that was started in April, 2000 with the hope of helping a group of young Ethiopian women earn money to support their families. The project involves making greeting cards and several other products from the various parts of banana plants.

JBA is located in Jimma, Ethiopia -- a city of 130,000 residents in the southwest of the country, about 335 kilometers (200 miles) from the capital city of Addis Ababa. Ethiopia and in particular, Jimma has a very young population (more than half are younger than 20 years old) and a very high unemployment rate. This combination makes it very difficult for young people to find work.

The JBA project was conceived with the following two factors in mind:

* Women are typically responsible for taking care of the majority of aspects of daily life.

* There are many different types of banana trees in the area surrounding Jimma.

The cards and other products that are made by JBA are produced from the many parts of the banana plant including the bark, the leaves and the flowers. The materials are dried, ironed and baked to give many different colors and textures. These are then cut into small pieces using a pattern and glued to make intricate designs and images. The products offered include greeting cards, placemats, small posters, bookmarks and coasters. The designs depict many aspects of daily life in Ethiopia. Of course, there is also a collection of cards for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, graduations and Christmas.

Through this program, nearly thirty women in Jimma are currently making a reasonable living wage. With continued success, this number is likely to grow. JBA is a non-profit organization and all funds go directly towards paying the women who make the cards and towards extending the program.

Please browse this web-site and contact us with questions, comments or product orders.

THE UNITY OF THE BANANA TREE

My love you, my grandchildren, my sons and daughters. Come and look closely at this banana tree. It looks like a hand, doesn't it? See how the leaves are just like fingers. Do you know how a banana tree grows? When a young tree sprouts from the mother tree, first one leaf emerges, then it bends down and another appears. One after another, eight, nine, ten, or even more leaves emerge in this way. And as they continue to sprout from this one central point, they grow closer and closer, over lapping like pieces of paper all glued together. How much unity and symmetry these leaves have!

The bananas also grow clustered together, emerging from a single stem and forming into bunches. They live in such unity, sharing the same nourishment, the same taste, and the same color. But then we pick them and break them apart, one by one. That is something to think about.

My grandchildren, all of God's creation is like this banana tree. God created Adam and Eve (A.S) from just one point, and from this point emerged twenty-one sets of twins, or forty-two children. They had one mother, one father, one family, and one God. They all started from one point in such unity, but then they separated into many reli gions, races, and societies, and so many differences developed.

God and God's family, the community of mankind, all came from one point. The whole society of mankind is one family. They all emerged from one God, one truth. God has told us that we are all different parts of the same thing. No matter what our external differ ences may be, we are all one. We are all one.

When wisdom comes and we understand this, then differences, murder, and sin will not exist among us. We will live in unity. Think about this. My children, through the example of the banana tree, God has shown us what unity can be like. My love you. Anbu.
