Batiking & Sewing Center (Ashaiman)
Elizabeth Nartey, a Global Mama since 2012

Prosperity means finally being computer literate! The world is being taken over by IT and having no knowledge of IT would be detrimental.”

 

Meet Elizabeth: Elizabeth joined Global Mamas as a seamstress after learning about the organization from a friend. In addition to learning new sewing patterns and skills, Elizabeth really enjoys working in Ashaiman’s team-based workshop. Her team of three seamstresses is called Adom, which means ‘grace’ in the Ghanaian language of Twi. The Adom team coordinates orders together and encourages one another to work hard! Elizabeth’s second son was recently born and she and her husband, a construction worker, believe that education as the key to a successful future. On the weekends, she enjoys cooking a Ghanaian dish called fufu for her family.

 

To the women around the world wearing her products, Elizabeth says, “Thank you for buying our products. You should continue to buy every day and tell a friend to buy Global Mamas too!”

 



Ashaiman (pronounced A-shah-ma) is our newest Global Mamas location. Originally located in the town of Prampram, this textile location relocated to Ashaiman in August 2012. The Ashaiman Mamas produce batik textiles and sew them into beautiful accessories and apparel. All of our Mamas work together in the Ashaiman production center and are directly employed by Global Mamas, which provides them with health care and retirement benefits.
