Batiking & Sewing Center (Cape Coast)
Sarah Mensah, a Global Mama since 2007


Sarah Mensah has been batiking since 2004. She started as a seamstress and decided to go to school to learn batiking in order to design her own clothes from start to finish. In addition, Sarah makes soap specifically for washing clothes and dishes. She learned about Global Mamas from a friend, and started with the organization in August 2007. She likes that working with Global Mamas always keeps her busy with work. Since becoming a Mama, Sarah has been able to move to a shop, hire one employee, and support her child. In the future, she would like to expand her business and hire more employees.

Cape Coast is home to our largest production location and was the first Global Mamas location. It was here that our founding Mamas came together in 2003 to produce the first Global Mamas product line. Today the Cape Coast Global Mamas community comprises nearly 100 independent, women-owned businesses. In Cape Coast our Mamas are batikers and seamstresses who work from their own shops or from their homes.
