Batiking & Sewing Center (Ashaiman)
Grace Osabutey, a Global Mama since 2012

“I feel that I’ve worked for prosperity and that I have achieved it.”

 

Meet Grace: After completing junior high school, Grace enrolled in a vocational school to learn how to batik. Following graduation, she heard about the opportunity to join Global Mamas from a friend. Grace enjoys her work at Global Mamas; she says she prefers the dyes because they don’t fade over time and she loves seeing her fabrics transformed into products. Her favorite batik designs are zig zag and fisheye; Grace also designed her own pattern for a contest to create a uniform for seamstresses and batikers in Ashaiman. Grace dreams of one day opening her own large batik shop. When she’s not batiking at Global Mamas, Grace enjoys spending time with her daughter Clementina and supporting her dream of becoming a doctor.

 

“I like working in teams and trying new techniques together.”

 



Ashaiman (pronounced A-shah-ma) is our newest Global Mamas location. Originally located in the town of Prampram, this textile location relocated to Ashaiman in August 2012. The Ashaiman Mamas produce batik textiles and sew them into beautiful accessories and apparel. All of our Mamas work together in the Ashaiman production center and are directly employed by Global Mamas, which provides them with health care and retirement benefits.
