Theresa Tawiah, a Global Mama since 2010

“Prosperity means being able to support my children.”

 

Meet Theresa: A mother of four, Theresa began working with Global Mamas so that she could better support her family. A former farmer, Theresa grew corn and cassava and found that farming wasn’t lucrative enough to support her family. She’s pleased that since coming to work for Global Mamas, she can better support her family. Theresa is proud to have seen one child become an eye doctor and another finish senior high school, and she has high hopes for her two younger children to finish their education and begin careers. Theresa is also proud to own her home and shares it with nine family members.

 

When asked what she’d like to share with those who buy her products, Theresa says, “I am happy that you buy our products because it’s our livelihood.”

 



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.
