Our Global Community is made up of our Mamas who produce beautiful products using traditional methods; our employees who manage production, ensuring high quality and delivering personal customer service; our international volunteers and interns who contribute their time and talents to further the development of our Mamas’ expertise; our donors who support the expansion of our programs leading to more jobs, and customers who make everything we do possible by purchasing our products.
Global Mamas products are full of life and love. Each item is hand-crafted using traditional techniques, maintaining local artisanal skills such as batiking, bead-making and Shea butter production. Global Mamas products are unique and high-quality, tended to with care through a meticulous quality control process and by a dedicated customer service team.
KNOW Your Producer
The Global Mamas are mothers, wives, grandmothers, sisters, talented entrepreneurs and leaders in their communities. There are nearly 350 producers from 7 different communities in the Global Mamas network. We invite you to bring even more meaning to your favorite Global Mamas product by meeting the Mama who produced it or learning more about the locations in Ghana where it was produced.
CHANGE Her Life
Our producers are unique and their accomplishments over the years have varied from purchasing new equipment, supporting their children’s education through all levels of school (including university), opening shops, building homes and most importantly, feeling empowered and valued.
Global Mamas is committed to sustainable growth and since inception has created hundreds of jobs in Ghana. Fair Trade practices ensure that every Global Mama is paid a steady, living wage. We further empower our Mamas by inviting them to be a part of organizational decisions and product development. Through our powerful network of international volunteers and interns, our Mamas receive personalized, hands-on training to refine their skills and strengthen their capacity to produce better products, manage their growing businesses and personal incomes, and improve their health and the health of their children.
