Beadmaking Center (Krobo)
Doris Debrah, a Global Mama since 2012

“Prosperity is being able to get what you want. I will have reached prosperity when I can be self-employed.”

 

Meet Doris: After finishing senior high school, Doris decided to work for Global Mamas upon discovering the office was right behind her house! Doris works as a bead assembler and loves to make earrings, especially the Sister Earrings. Since coming to Global Mamas, she has been able to save her money, enabling her to purchase the things she wants and pay her electricity bills. Doris lives in her family home with her six siblings and parents. In her free time, she and her family do their laundry and sell rice. Doris hopes to go back to school to study education so she can teach beadmaking.

 

When asked what she’d like to share with those who buy her products, Doris says, “Our products are good quality, so please order more of them!” 

 



Odumase Krobo is home to the second Global Mamas location. Leveraging the success of our Mamas in Cape Coast, we replicated the model in Krobo with the skilled producers of recycled glass beads. Opened in 2006, we now work with more than 30 different beadmakers. Our beadmakers are typically family run businesses in the villages scattered throughout the Odumase Krobo area. We also directly employ nearly 20 young women from the community who assemble our beaded products at the Global Mamas office.
