Volunteer in Africa

Past Business Development Projects

Freda Ng
Hong Kong, China
Freda laid much of the groundwork for Global Mamas' export program and directly helped many small business women by:
  • Developing a 2-year timeline for rolling out the International Trade program to include numerous businesses in the Cape Coast area.
  • Developing an Excel model to assist with order taking, production management and inventory tracking.
  • Creating a product coding system and reorganized product database according to this system.
  • Conducting a business training on financial planning with 6 women entrepreneurs.
  • Worked with two businesses to write a business plan and a proposal for funding.

The best part about Freda's experience was the unforgettable smiles and appreciation she got from the seamstresses and batikers after training them on financial planning.

"My volunteer experience is a highlight of my life! I probably have never smiled and laughed as much as I did during my stay in Ghana. The appreciation and warmness I got from the locals I've served was unforgettable. On the other hand, the optimistic and friendly Ghanaians have also taught me how to make fun and joy out of every minute in life!"
