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.

“Prosperity, to me, is expanding my business.”


Meet Juliana: Juliana is thankful for the opportunity to work with Global Mamas. She says, “Thank you for buying our beads. It helps not only me, but also my family.” A widowed mother of five, Juliana balanced motherhood and nursing for 17 years until she decided to follow her true passion of beadmaking and partnered with Global Mamas. Juliana’s management and customer service skills have brought her success and make her a good role model to the other Mamas. With the regular business that Global Mamas brings, Juliana now owns her own shop and financially supports a handful of people, with plans to help many others. 


When asked about her dreams for the future, Juliana says, “I love children, so I want to build a school for orphans. Education is very important for their future.”
