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. Their artisans (known as 'Mamas') define prosperity as going beyond financial well-being to include happiness and good health. The Mamas 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. The Mamas realize their dreams of having the opportunity to support their families, send their children to school, improve their health, and save for the future.
The Global Mamas are mothers, wives, grandmothers, sisters, talented entrepreneurs and leaders in their communities. There are nearly 350 producers from 7 different communities in the Global Mamas network. We invite you to bring even more meaning to your favorite Global Mamas product by meeting the Mama who produced it or learning more about the locations in Ghana where it was produced.
