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, means that one day I will own my own store.”


Meet Regina: Regina is very happy that she decided to apply for a bead assembler job with Global Mamas. Since she began, Regina has entered some of her own creative beadwork in design competitions, learned about healthy exercise, and become friends with her coworkers. Though soft-spoken and shy, Regina has big dreams for the future. After learning more business skills and further developing her creativity at Global Mamas, Regina would like to use her sewing skills to open her own dress shop.


When asked to share a word or two with the people who purchase her products, Regina says, “Keep buying our products!”
