Meet The Women
Sarah Aggrey is a divorcee with sole financial responsibility for her daughter.
Sarah "Adwoa" Aggrey, Seamstress
Batiking & Sewing Center (Cape Coast)
Sarah "Adwoa" Aggrey took up sewing in 1995 because she thought it would provide her with a secure future. Now, she runs her business from the verandah of her grandmother's apartment block. In August 2006, she joined the Global Mamas co-operative after being told about their work by a friend of hers who makes batik cloth. Sarah is divorced and has sole responsibility of her teenage daughter, and they live together in a two-room apartment in a suburb of Cape Coast. When she's not sewing or doing the housework, Sarah likes watching telenovellas – soaps from Latin America which are very popular in Ghana. She imagines her future with Global Mamas will be successful and allow her to hire apprentices, which will give her more time to rest (and watch her favorite television programs!). Sarah also hopes to search for a bigger home so that she and her daughter can live more comfortably and provide her daughter with the means to train as a nurse.
