Meet The Women
Mavis Thompson had to give up her business because of high equipment costs but is back in business with the help of Global Mamas.
Mavis Thompson, Batiker
Batiking & Sewing Center (Cape Coast)
Born and raised in Cape Coast, Mavis learned her craft in 1989 and opened her own shop called "Press on Towards the Goal". After only a few years, a lack of customers made it impossible for Mavis to afford the expensive batiking supplies necessary to maintain her business. She was forced to close her shop and find alternative work selling lace and curtains by the side of the road.
