James (left) and others in the Kihara Village outside of Nairobi live amongst the many banana farms in the area.  They have creatively taken the fibers from the banana trees and turned them into pieces of art, giving them the opportunity to earn a few shillings. 

With very simple tools, they turn these leaves and fibers into amazing nativity sets and our very fun baobab trees.
