Batiking & Sewing Center (Ho)
Edem Homado, a Global Mama since 2008

A Global Mama since 2008, Edem became a seamstress in late 2007 but already had an eye and an appreciation for quality and creative designs, which is one of the reasons she enjoys working with the cooperative. She currently lives with her parents and they often help her out with caring for her daughter, Philomina, whom Edem hopes will become a nurse someday. She sees herself working with the cooperative for a long time and she feels good about the contribution she is making just through her work.



Lady Volta Batik in Ho was designed to give seamstresses and batikers in the region the opportunity to earn a fair wage by creating Global Mamas apparel. With the help of our sister organization, Village Exchange Ghana, Lady Volta Batik now employs nearly 15 women (and a few men too). The steady, year-round business from Global Mamas provides the workers with dependable income as well as a tremendous sense of pride.
