Beadmaking Center (Krobo)

Odumase Krobo is home to the second Global Mamas location. Leveraging the success of our Mamas in Cape Coast, we replicated the model in Krobo with the skilled producers of recycled glass beads. Opened in 2006, we now work with more than 30 different beadmakers. Our beadmakers are typically family run businesses in the villages scattered throughout the Odumase Krobo area. We also directly employ nearly 20 young women from the community who assemble our beaded products at the Global Mamas office.

“I believe prosperity means that things are going well in your life.”


Meet Doris: Formerly a nanny, Doris applied to work at Global Mamas after a friend, also a bead assembler, told her about the organization. She’s proud that she’s learned how to design beaded products and says that she and her coworkers make high quality products. Her favorites are the necklaces. On the weekends, she likes to relax and cook for her family—the Ghanaian dish banku stew is her favorite.


“My dreams for the future are studying to become a nurse and seeing peace come to my community.”
