Black Soap Production Center (Adenta)
Amelia Okusia Patrick, a Global Mama since 2008

Four years ago, a friend introduced Amelia to Eugenia, owner of Naasakle, a Global Mamas shea butter business parter. Soon after, Amelia joined Naasakle and has been working here ever since making our Dandy Lion Black Soap. Originally from Kumasi, Ghana’s second-largest city, Amelia sold fish there to an unreceptive market and eventually came to Accra to find work. She grew up among two brothers and four sisters, and lived with her father's new wife after her mother passed away. Now in Accra, Amelia has four children from ages seven to 18, and is happy to send them all to school.

Global Mamas Dandy Lion Black Soap is a traditional African soap produced by Naasakle Ltd, owned and founded by Eugenia Akuete. Through the production of black soap, Eugenia provides dependable, well-paying, and supportive employment for many women and men in Adenta, an area of Accra. While this work has an immediate positive impact on their lives, it also touches the lives of their families extending across Ghana's many regions.
