Belinda Siatey, a Global Mama since 2012

“Prosperity means having money and being happy.”

 

Meet Belinda: Belinda was working in the mobile money industry when her employer went out of business, so she was happy to find a job at Global Mamas. She is proud that she has learned about designing beaded products, especially earrings, and even more so of her personal accomplishments: “Global Mamas has changed my life. It's helped me finish building my grandfather's house, where I now live with my husband and two sons. In the future, I would like to build our own house.” She dreams that her sons, Wisdom and Jonathan, will become a doctor and a soldier, respectively. Working for Global Mamas helps Belinda to afford private school, which provides higher quality education than public school.

 

“In the future, I want to build my own house, buy a car, and send my children to higher education.”



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.
