Batiking & Sewing Center (Ashaiman)
Justina Richmond, a Global Mama since 2011

 

“I would see myself as prosperous when I own my house and my own tailoring shop.”

 

Meet Justina: A seamstress who loves to make aprons and potholders, Justina learned to sew from her mother, with whom she apprenticed before being recruited by Global Mamas. During her apprenticeship, Global Mamas came to her mother’s shop and recruited Justina. As she continues to learn new techniques, Justina dreams of one day owning her own shop. Justina spends her weekends singing at her church and teaching young children traditional African dances. Their dance troupe travels around West Africa and hopes to make their first international trip to Greece.

 

“I would like to thank our Global Mamas customers very much. They buy our products, which allows us to keep working and learning new skills.”

 



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.
