Shea Butter Production Center (Tamale)

Global Mamas partners with the Christian Mothers’ Association (CMA) Shea Butter Cooperative in Tamale to handcraft the pure, unrefined shea butter used in Global Mamas skin care products. The skilled craftswomen producing shea butter for Global Mamas are now earning double their previous wages and benefiting from other workplace improvement projects through the Shea Helps Empower (SHE) Fund.
CMA Shea Butter Cooperative, a Global Mama since 2016

To produce our Global Beauty Butter we partner with the Christian Mother’s Association (CMA) in Vittin located in the Northern Region of Ghana. Through its partnership with Global Mamas, the women of the CMA have not only had their wages doubled, but a portion of the sales of Global Beauty Butter will go towards the Shea Helps Empower (SHE) Fund. The SHE Fund supports specific, group-driven projects to improve the CMA Shea Butter Cooperative’s production facilities and local community.

Georgina Adaliba, the Coordinator of the CMA Vittin, has been actively involved with the shea processing center since its inception in 1991. She works hard to make sure that the 25 craftswomen have raw materials for work and monitors day to day production so that they are producing consistently high quality shea butter.
