Black Soap Production Center (Adenta)
Deborah Lekete, a Global Mama since 2008

Deborah grew up in Ghana's Volta Region, the seventh sibling among three sisters and three brothers. Hardworking and determined, she studied business but was unable to continue due to financial issues. Later, a friend introduced her to Eugenia, owner of Naasalke, a Global Mamas shea butter business partner, and after spending some time in training, she began working full time with Naasalke. Eventually, she saved enough money to go back to school in 2009. She is studying administration and has hopes to one day become a manager at the Ghanaian insurance company, SIC. She greatly appreciates the way Eugenia encourages her and her fellow employees to produce high quality work!


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.
