Batiking & Sewing Center (Ashaiman)

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.
Alice Frimpong, a Global Mama since 2012

“Prosperity means achieving my goals. My major goal is to become an international fashion designer. I would also give back to my society by helping young people in Ghana.”

 

Meet Alice: A graduate of fashion school, Alice dreams of traveling outside Ghana to learn about fashion trends in other countries. These days, she’s a seamstress at Global Mamas while building her own business, Icelyn Collection, on the weekends. Alice enjoys working with her fellow Mamas because of the learning and support they offer one another. She’s especially appreciated the opportunity to learn how to use a pattern and how to finish a dress using special stitching. Her favorite product to make is the Eli dress—not only does she enjoy sewing it, but she thinks it’s a cute style!

 

To the women around the world wearing her products, Alice says, “We produce good and high-quality products, so keep buying from us!”

 

 
Beatrice Tettey, a Global Mama since 2012

“Prosperity means owning my shop as a fashion designer with lots of customers.”

 

Meet Beatrice: Though Beatrice knows how to sew, Global Mamas had a greater need for a quality control staff member and she was hired in this role. Beatrice continues to sew on the weekend, hoping to one day be a Global Mamas seamstress, but it in the meantime she has the important role of making sure finished products are ready to be sold. She says that since she joined the organization, “a lot” of changes have come about in her life—it’s easier to support her children. She hopes to see them both graduate from university and help her daughter realize her dream of becoming a doctor.

 

To the women around the world wearing the products she’s checked for quality, Beatrice’s message is: “We want Global Mamas to prosper and be big in Ghana. We're working hard so we can achieve this! Thanks for buying our products so we can continue to grow.”
