Full Product Description

  • A meaningful token for Palm Sundays
  • These hand-woven crosses help support Massai villagers of Southern Tanzania
  • A poignant resource for giving good news this Easter

Buy Eden African Palm Crosses and you'll be giving Massai villagers of Southern Tanzania valuable extra work, economic independence and increased control over their own lives and livelihoods.

With their only other income as the sale of any meagre agricultural surplus, your purchase of African Palm Crosses is vital for the household basics - children's clothes, soap, school books and travel for medical treatment.

One hundred percent natural, buying packs of 50 African Palm Crosses will encourage people living in a very poor part of Tanzania; providing the investment for planting maize, millet and ground nuts to feed themselves and their families.

By purchasing these African Palm Crosses, your Easter worship will be helping some of the poorest and most deprived communities move toward self sufficiency in agriculture, lowering their dependency on international aid and increasing their access to life changing medical support, education and training.

Buying African Palm Crosses this Easter is to put into action the Gospel message of 'good news for the poor' in the most practical and directly effective way imaginable.

Each cross measures approximately 26cm x 11cm.

This year (2018), Palm Sunday is on March 25th.

Publisher's Description

Masasi African palm crosses are hand woven without chemical treatment of the trees or palm leaves. The absence of chemical treatment protects the Masasi village environment and makes the palm crosses safe this Palm Sunday and their burnt ashes safe to use on next year's Ash Wednesday. Poor in everything except spirit and African dwarf palm plants, the entire population of Masasi village find a role in hand-weaving Easter palm crosses from single strands of natural palm leaf.

Sourced entirely from a village in one exceptionally poor area of Southern Tanzania,'s African palm crosses are woven in one piece by the men, women and children of the Masasi village. Harvested from locally grown and nurtured dwarf African palms, hand-woven crosses give the villagers a life-line income.

Farming on a subsistence level, only the sale of their few surplus cashew nuts offers the villagers any hope of even the most basic levels of health care and education. When in 1965, Anglican missionary Alan Talbot founded the charity African Palm Crosses, the farming families of Masasi found the opportunity to lift themselves above the poverty line.

Weaving the strips of locally grown palm fronds into perfectly formed palm crosses, the villagers turned an ancient handicraft into a self-help opportunity to invest in the future health and education of their village. Through their distribution network 'African Palms', the proceeds from Masasi palm crosses are re-invested to meet basic needs and services that the developed world takes for granted.

Proceeds from African Palm Crosses are invested in children's eye clinics, improved seed stocks, HIV Awareness, water resources and environmental conservation. Through these programmes, funded in part by African palm crosses, the health and wellbeing of children & adults is a substantially improved. With the income and education from African palm crosses, villagers have the resources and knowledge to invest in their children's future and in protecting their environment.

Each cross measures approximately 26cm x 11cm.

This year (2019), Palm Sunday is on April 14th.
