The palm crosses were made by the church family in the parish of Bereko in northern Tanzania. In that area, Christianity is a minority faith. There are two churches in the parish at Bereko and Kikilo and the small congregations make these palm crosses to raise an income for their work in the area. The priority project at present is the building of a clergy house in Kikilo, the church family have already made the bricks and they are now working to raise funds for the rest of the construction.
This project is a part of the companion link between the Anglican Dioceses of Rochester (UK) and Kondoa (Tanzania).
