Economic Development

Global Mamas enables the economic independence of Ghanaian women by promoting their traditional skills in producing handmade products and provides employees with personalized, hands-on business assistance and computer training to strengthen the capacity of women entrepreneurs to better manage their growing enterprises.

Founded in 2003 with just six seamstresses, Global Mamas now employs over 500 women, and sells to nearly 400 stores around the world.The women fair and deserved wages for their high-quality work. Sales of Global Mamas' products provide dignity to African women who are now able to earn an honest living.

Global Mamas believes that prosperity extends beyond financial security and cannot be achieved without a healthy workforce and family environment. To that end, Global Mamas partners with local doctors and clinicians to provide regular health and wellness trainings on a variety of topics including HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, and breast cancer awareness. The organization also considers capacity building an essential ingredient to individual empowerment, and provides educational opportunities and trainings designed to enhance its employees’ technical and life skills.
