Founded in 2003, the Global Mamas community is comprised of thousands of people from around the world working together with the mission of creating prosperity for African women and their families. Our Mamas define prosperity as going beyond financial well-being to include happiness and good health. They achieve prosperity by creating and selling unique, handcrafted products of the highest quality. Being able to do the work they love and being empowered by financial independence leads to greater happiness. Our Mamas realize their dreams of having the opportunity to sup-port their families, send their children to school, improve their health, and save for the future.
Our Global Community is made up of our Mamas who produce beautiful products using traditional methods; our employees who manage production, ensuring high quality and delivering personal customer service; our international volunteers and interns who con-tribute their time and talents to further the development of our Ma-mas’ expertise; our donors who support the expansion of our pro-grams leading to more jobs, and customers who make everything we do possible by purchasing our products.

CHANGE Her Life
Our producers are unique and their accomplishments over the years have varied from purchasing new equipment, supporting their chil-dren’s education through all levels of school (including university), opening shops, building homes and most importantly, feeling em-powered and valued.
Global Mamas is committed to sustainable growth and since incep-tion has created hundreds of jobs in Ghana. Fair Trade practices ensure that every Global Mama is paid a steady, living wage. We further empower our Mamas by inviting them to be a part of organi-zational decisions and product development. Through our powerful network of international volunteers and interns, our Mamas receive personalized, hands-on training to refine their skills and strengthen their capacity to produce better products, manage their growing businesses and personal incomes, and improve their health and the health of their children.
