Global Mamas is a non-profit organization that works to create a life of prosperity for Ghanian women and their families. By working with about 300 women in Ghana who make batiked fabric, sew garments, and make jewelry from glass beads, Global Mamas is empowering these women to provide for themselves. Most of these skilled makers are independent entrepreneurs who own their own workshops. By partnering with Global Mamas, the women are able to earn three times the national minimum wage, allowing them to grow their businesses, purchase land, and educate their children.
